Reviewed yesterday NEW

Got there about 1945hrs on a Sunday, seated straight away. We wasn't pounced on as soon as we sat down but was approached by Emily to see if we wanted a drink. Emily was an excellent waitress, she listened to how I liked my gammon cooked. She was friendly, happy and approachable and nothing was too much trouble. The food... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The fries we use are skin-on fries, that can sometimes have the appearance of having darker patches. More

So average I will not be spending my hard earnt cash here again. AVOID THE JACKET SPUDS they are overcooked and dried out consistently. Vegetables are from frozen and absolutely tasteless. Steak was tough and chicken passable service good but let down by the food if it wasn't for the salad cart I would be hungry

Went there yesterday for lunch and the food was lovely. I had the half a chicken which was lovely and moist and served with the loveliest gravy and hubby had the southern chicken in a bun which was equally as good. And the key lime pie is a must if you've never had it. Will go again soon for sure

Been here so many times over the last few years, and would have to say it seems to be sliding downhill. The service is always good, staff attentive. Drinks are also good. Parking & location not a problem. However I feel the food is the problem, the "microwave portion controlled" cooking is just not my style. Whilst the food is... More

It was really busy when we rocked up, but a table was found quickly for us. The staff were friendly enough, but the service was not instinctive...probably as it was so full. We had to ask to order then ask for the bill. Salad bar fully stocked throughout visit, which worked for me as I had the £3.99 salad only.... More
