Came here with a group of friends after a long day of activities. Staff are very unfriendly, look like they don't want to be there and only a couple actually smiled. The food is bland and service without any love or passion. Definitely not worth a visit and definitely not worth the bill at the end of it.

I went here a few months back and I still feel robbed to this day. Food was nothing how it looked, drinks were tasteless and flat, portion sizes were small and service was awkward due to the place being so empty (no wonder). The waiter was hovering around like a fly with nothing else to do but watch you as... More

Family of 4 went on a Thursday. On entering we were asked to take whichever seats we fancied. We had menus at the table and were able to pick what we wanted. About 10 mins later we were attended to. Placed our orders and food was received quite fast. Someone's asks on hand to check if everything was OK. Overall.... More

Only went there once, one of the staff was very unhelpful and quite rude. Food was ok, but think it was made worse by the waitresses attitude that left a bad taste in my mouth, will not return there, shame really.

After eating at another branch of this chain and thinking how poor it was, I’m kicking myself that I tried them again. Visited on a Monday night and tried the midweek offer. First off, waited to be seated for what seemed like a very long while for a restaurant that only had 3 other tables in use when we arrived.... More

Just got home from here with my partner and daughter. The restaurant was empty apart from one other couple, which I thought was a good thing. Turns out there's probably a good reason it was empty. Ordered my partner and I two drinks, both Tango, both tastes like dirty water. Ordered our food, I had the meatballs. From the attached... More

Staff are experts in avoiding eye contact. Restaurant was almost empty but the waiter managed to avoid us for ages, placed order which he promptly forgot to place himself and only realised his mistake when others had received their food and we hadn't, finally got the food which was dreadful. I've never had chicken and mushroom pasta with so little... More

My son and grand-daughter took me out for lunch to celebrate my birthday. Restaurant was pretty quiet as it was just past noon. Food arrived and sadly my meal was luke warm. Just asked the waiter to re-heat it in the microwave as it wasn't a problem for me. food returned piping hot and was delicious. Very enjoyable meal.
