We went here earlier this month as a group of three girls ready for a catch up. Ordered starters and mains, both of which fill a hole but there's something about the food here that just never blows me away, I eat the food but it never lives up to my expectations.

I come here at least once a month as I love the ambiance of this restaurant and I don't really care about what others say but I really like the food... the hot dog is one of my favourite dishes here. I came here recently to celebrate my birthday as I didn't have time to do it on the day.... More

We only go every now and again due to the slow service. I love the food love the drinks just takes over an hour from start to finish and with kids thats too long.

Food is ok. About what you'd expect from a large chain. Staff friendly and smiled. Always a big plus for me. Refillable coffee and tea..... Nice touch.
