stopped off for some coffee, it is a pub style restaurant and it looks very nice inside with comfortable seating and very clean. Service was okay, bit slow to be honest and was tempted to leave as got fed up with waiting, got the impression it was because we only ordered coffees and they prioritized the food orders. Eventually got... More

We ran out of the Saturday Stratford crowds and the heaving Macdonalds in to a lovely peaceful upstairs restaurant. Had a lunch that was small but tasty and satisfying. The service started well before the shift change but I guess he was a bit overstretched and so felt he had to raise his voice. We will go again and recommend... More

Went here today for lunch with my family. We arrived just before 12 but were happy to wait until they started serving food. Our waitress was very friendly and welcoming. The menu looked good with a wide variety of dishes and when our food arrived it was hot and delicious. The only thing was that the waitress didn't come and... More

Sunday evening visit- when the service was received it was good, however for the price paid for the meal - starters were received before wine had arrived, think it had been forgotten about! Sat with dirty plates, both starters and mains for more than 20 minutes and no table check received. A little disappointed. Dessert was nice though and the... More

My daughter had the burger looked like it had been recooked, the cheese on the top was transparently thin and the chips again were just the bin ends, not a full... More

We sat down at 4.30 pm, had drinks and asked for the menu. Having made our choices, we waited half an hour for someone to return and order for us. The food was lovely but once eaten we were forgotten again. Eventually we ordered sweet but waited so long we cancelled and paid for what we had eaten. Staff said... More

Excellent location and nicely done out but they seriously need to employ more staff. We sat outside amongst tables that were full of the previous inhabitants glasses and plates. We did move stuff ourselves to the table next to us but they just sat there and when the table of six next to us left that eyesore was just left.... More

Lovely venue, drinks fairly noticed. The menu was lovely and great value but we were on our way out for dinner so couldn't sample the food!! Toilets spotless, very nicely decorated... But... I had to walk upstairs to access them so not good for disabled visitors. Close to everything, recommended.

Thank cms40
