We went on a retirement do on Sunday bank holiday august about 20 of us we had pre ordered our food as requested . Our friend was paying for us all after a discussion with her because we didn’t want to upset her she told...us she was in tears with the service and the food . She has since complained and there has been no reply . I can honestly say it was a terrible meal for all of us I don’t know where to start 20 pieces of raw chilli on lettuce Asian salad !!! A rotisserie half chicken try over cooked pindered up old hen !!! Chips try greasy hard potatoes in old burnt fat !! None of us complained at the time because our friend was paying and we didn’t want to upset her but this is the worst service and meal anyone has ever had a disgrace and the fact you Have not even replied to her is disgusting .More

Have visited many times with work and never been blown away to be honest. I decided to try the Cajun burger for a change. It was okay and the fries were nice enough, but the chicken was over cooked and very dry. It was definitely...not freshly cooked and I think it had been kept warm for a while, hence the drynessMore

We went as a party of 4 girls. Kian was our waiter for the evening. He was friendly, gave good options on drinks, made good eye contact and was professional throughout the evening. Kian was well presented, polite and nothing was too much trouble for...him. When I return to the retreat I would ask for Kian to be our waiter. He was interesting and interested in our conversation, mature and just had a lovely manner about him……………his parents should be very proud of him. Thanking you once again Kian for making our evening so enjoyable, you area star.More

Credit where it’s due I have to say that our visit today was faultless!!! Each person who attended to us was polite, efficient and the food was second to none. We had a young man called Kian Mistry was our main server and he was...superb. Couldn’t have had better service or food. Would definitely recommend this place and can’t wait for my next visit. 11/10More

Hair in food! The drinks were ok, had to go to bar as no people visible to ask. I ordered mini donuts for my son, as he was eating them, we found hairs in the sauce! I took it to the waitress who offered a...replacement but my son was put off. She refunded the money for the desert on to my card and offered ice cream but we just did not want any thing in there! I do not know what's happened to this place!More

Ate here earlier this week, the food and drinks were both amazing! I am vegetarian and quite fussy with my food, my main course was the pumpkin ravioli and it was one of the nicest i've ever had. Wine and cocktails were both great. Manager...and staff very attentive and polite. Atmosphere and surroundings were really lovely too. We will definitely be back!More

It was late afternoon on a Saturday and the weather was nice. This place is walking distance for us so we decided to have a trip down there and we really enjoyed ourselves. They’ve made big improvements over the last few years and deserve great...credit for this. The outside seating area is now huge and a great place to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and some good quality drinks. The food has been okay rather than great when we have eaten there but it is a great place to have a couple of beers. If the weather is inclement you can sit undercover and there’s lots of heaters and blankets for when it gets cold. We’ve always found the staff to be excellent as well so this place is definitely worth a visit or two.More
