Myself and another friend disnarrive... More

Until returning this evening to be dumped in a drafty corner with no talks of drinks and menu's, just sat waiting. Food was slow and... More

First visit here. We ordered main meals and my partner ordered fajitas. The cheese was not the best, cheap and tasteless. Half way through his four wraps he ran out of the cheese salsa and sour cream ( pots of these were very small)! Was informed we would have to pay extra for more to enable him to finish his... More

We had looked at the menu online thinking there would be a good choice of food and that wasn't the case! It would of been nice to be told... More
