It was such a beautiful Sunday afternoon and what better way to spend it than having a nice family lunch at a nice restaurant. However, this was not to be. To be fair I'll start with the positives... It has a kids play area which is something we always look out for and the ambience is also nice. That being... More

Excellent place for kids especially on special occasion like birthdays. A variety of kids activities and playground to keep the little one's busy and a good bar for their daddy's to chill out. Food was great especially from the grill section. Great staff and place recommended for a Saturday or Sunday day out for the family.

The quality of food has improved somewhat from our last visit. Service is good and kids play area well equipped and well located (in full view of the eating area). Can get busy on weekends. Worth checking out.

Attended a 40th Surprise Dinner for a close friend and colleague on 6th July everything about it was terrible. Service was not great, food was even worse. Not a single person did not complain. Cold food, flat food, burnt food, mixed up orders. I was very disappointed. Complaints made to management were not acted upon. I won't be returning.

Its an outdoorsy type of restaurant with a good spacious playground. Both times I've been there has been a birthday party of some sort. But that doesn't compromise the service of other patrons. I liked the pizza both times.

Visit frequently for the t-bone steaks, done very well and extremely tasty - add mushroom sauce. Full bar is available, and friendly staff, would recommend to all

I've been to UTR a number of times but each time they've improved some thing or the other. Most recently they've upgraded their playground making it one of the most child-friendly locales. Their food is good and I love the value for money - not too pricey. The service could be better especially with large groups but overall a fine... More

A great outdoor restaurant and bar with a big focus on taking care of the children (there is a substantial play area, often with a Punch & Judy show and clown) and food quality is high. The downside is the pricing.
