Nice place to eat

Good service by friendly and efficient staff. Food arrived promptly, I had the chili which was served in a sort of large crispy shell (not quite sure what it was made from so didn't eat it) Would have prefered a simple bowl of chili and rice, howver the chili itself was tasty. Dessert was... read more

This is an excellent restaurant. I've been here many times & always enjoyed the food. I've tried a majority of the menu, and always been very happy with the service and food. Top marks from me!

I came here with my partner and my 3 year old & we had a lovely time. Portions were good and the value for money was excellent. The staff are excellent with young children and provided crayons, colouring book and a balloon which my son was extremely happy about

It took a bit of finding and caused some funny looks when we asked directions. A lot of locals had never heard of it (their loss) so perhaps they need to advertise more. The food was excellent and it was great to see my grandson clear his plate. We enjoyed it so much, we returned the next night and the... More

This really is just a down market Yankee Traveller. The prices match but the quality is not the same and the atmosphere seems a bit plastic-y

We came across Fatso's whilst looking for the now closed Italian restaurant. My Cheesy Nut Burger was delicious. Highly recommended to visiting vegetarians. The Diablo past was a very hot according to my spice loving son so his yummy Mexican Sunset Virgin cocktail hit the spot. The cookie skyscraper dessert was more than enough for two sweet toothed teens.

My other half had the bacon and cheese... More

Such a shame, we used to use this regularly for birthday celebrations amongst other meals, but now it looks dated, particularly with the analogue TVs stuck in a time warp. Portions have got smaller, prices have been hiked. To top it all our side order was brought late..and cold!
