Normal menus but well cooked and very nice friendly staff. I find this chain better than Pizza Express as there is more choice.

We visit frequently and find it consistently good, the staff are always excellent and the starters/ mains excellent. The deserts are in our opinion overpriced, but otherwise excellent. There have been one or two occasions when the service has been on the slow side, but given the number of times we have visited, we find it acceptable.

I find this one of the most disappointing places to dine out Not a place to go if you want a quick easy meal The service is always slow due to lack of staff resources

Average sort of place, nothing to get excited about, just dont order a caesar salad as portions are meagre and you will have to hunt around for the chicken pieces. The only good thing here is that the staff ( well at least the girl that served us ) was brilliant. One of the lunch party comented on the burnt... More

We attended her earlier in the year having booked a table. We were going for a pre theatre meal and the manager was extremely rude to us and told us that people who had booked after us, but who had arrived earlier would be served before us but that if we just had a main course they might be able...

As a family of 7 we had a very enjoyable lunch at this restaurant while on holiday in Cornwall. It was very busy and a bit noisy but by 2 o clock it had calmed down. Food was good and the service by the hard working Rachel was excellent. We will be returning next year for sure.

tried one of the new cocktails 'Italian twinkle' at a dear price. since its summer, i thought why not. when it arrived, the proseco glass wasn't even half filled and it tasted like elderflower coral and lemonade, very disappointed and the meal we had was okay, but didn't match the price it was. although our waitress was lovely and made...

After an hour, the food still hadn't arrived, so we told the staff. They rushed into the kitchen and said it would be five minutes. I timed it: it was ten. In total it took us 1 hour 20 to get our food. But it was delicious. The manager apologised for the delay allowing us to enjoy our food.

Popped in for an early supper prior to going to the cinema a few doors away. Very convenient for this. Food was good as you expect from a national chain, although not exceptional. These places really depend on staff to make a good meal even better. Overall it was still a good meal. Early on the staff were too few... More
