Went to restaurant for a special dinner with family, wait for food was long time in restaurant, when finally arrived was not very warm. Found the tables weren't very clean and staff seemed rude especially the guy cooking.

We were disappointed when we booked a table for four for 6.45 to have a meal to celebrate my 70th birthday. There was a large queue for the takeaway but not all that many for seating at tables. By 8 p.m., our meals had still not arrived, although the waitress had warned us of a delay. When I queried this... More

Management response:

Christina you can't go round telling lies. I have staff and customers that also back us up. You were very rude to the waitress. So she called the manager and you were rude again. After being sworn at by your son you were asked to leave. We were very busy, probaly the busiest night of the year so far. But... More

Management response:

I'm very sorry to hear this, I will personally be having a word with all the staff. There's no excuse for tables being dirty. The restaurant is having a makeover in November when things start to slow down a bit. Your one of the first to turn round and say that my staff have been rude to people, I've never... More

Have never had a takeaway, but have been regular customers in the restaurant for a number of years. The food has always been of a high standard and you can choose to have your fish grilled instead of fried. Good waitresses - even when very busy - and excellent value for money.

Thank Aloysius65
