First time to this McDonalds. Speed of service was quick and easy even with the kids special orders. The new system is in 1 aspect fast withi taking the order and someone putting the order together but its not so good when the 2nd person misses items from the order. Other than that overall good restaurant.

I visited the restaurant this evening at approx 6.30pm via the drive through and was astounded by the poor attitude of the girl serving us food at the end window. Having ordered a McCafe Ice Mango Cooler as part of my order the girl gave me a half full drink and when I questioned why it was half full she... More

Went here on way back from a trip to the farm. Never been in here before but it was convenient for our location. The parking was a nightmare, which in fairness was not mcd's fault. Entrance to parking is on really busy traffic light junction so it was caos getting in and out of turning. Parking was busy but ok... More

The McDonald's is located right next to a traffic light system and car park that can sometimes make it impossible to get in or out at peak times. There really needs to be another exit out of the car park. Generally staff get the order right when going for drive-through, but my last order they missed out my burger entirely... More

Rubbish food and slow service, chips are practically cold when served, there was no straws out , no serviettes, sauce slatted everywhere , I even saw one of the staff nearly slip over on something and didn't even stop to clean it up, diabolical.

The young lady who served me was great. Very friendly and took the time to have a laugh with my kids. The good ends there. The not so good... Hand dryer did not work in gents. After placing order - it was quiet at about quarter to 12 on a Saturday morning - waited ages, and I'm talking about 15... More

Every time I use the drive through the service is shocking. They forget items on the order. Inside is always full of kids sharing a coke and generally being loud. Food is generally like warm to cold. The manager doesn't manage. The evening staff are pretty useless too. Only go if you are desperate for the toilet.

It's Mcdonald, nothing special, nothing to shout about. But good while you are pecking and passing by in the late evening. Have also been for lunch with family and there were some special activities going on, which the kids loved.It is so easy to please 5 year olds. Service is fine, just like other Mcdonalds and food too is the... More
