I've not visited for a long time so thought it would be worth a visit. When ordering we asked our waitress of a rough eta on food as the kids were hungry and she said 'not long, it's not that busy'.

Literally just got home from a wonderful meal here for my sons 14th Birthday and felt compelled to write a review. What a brilliant place! I booked for our sons birthday and he had balloons waiting for him when we arrived. We were seated in Booth 82 and our server was Sharon who was simply outstanding. Nothing was too much... More

I enjoyed eating here. Hamburger a bit ordinary after the menu build-up. Peroni reliable. Bottled water hopelessly overpriced. Ask for tap water. Background music retro and to my retro taste. If they spent a few more pence on the basic food they would get a lot of repeat business.
