Although I cannot complain about the quality and pricing of the food the lack of customer service was very evident. My partner and I ordered a meal about 8:30 which arrived in reasonable time, however when my partner went to the counter to order a drink she waited nearly 10 minutes at a completely unattended bar and eventually gave up....

Hi Our supervisor was concerned over the welfare of your child as he was climbing over the crates into the display and also climbing on top of the high chairs which seems to have gone unnoticed by yourself There is a small barrier to stop children entering the display and parents supervising their children can see this and know not...

My most local and probably favourite diner. Wasn't sure when it became more child friendly ( old Person) but they then made an adults only section which we enjoy. Good, fresh food at reasonable prices.

Food is delicious and very reasonably priced for the portion sizes. Venue atmosphere is really nice and it's a great place to take kids with a brilliant kids area and the staff are great too!

Excellent place for a drink and a bite to eat. Other reviews are really mean. Staff are all really friendly, the place is very clean and the food options are good- better than brewers fare/Wetherspoons options. We had a very pleasant afternoon here

We visited with a family of 6 + 1 child for a birthday meal. We went at about 12:00. On arrival the restaurant was very nice looking, well set out and clean. Unfortunately this is where the good stuff ended. The staff member behind the bar when we arrived just said without looking at us, just take a seat and... More

Word of mouth did lead us here and prevented us from going into mcdonalds which is 100 years from this place. Keep up the good work.

Today my 9 month old granddaughter was in the restaurant and was told by the manager to tell the baby to stop throwing food!! It is such a pity as the food is okay here, but clearly not a place to take kids. For couples go, but if you have children I would recommend that you find alternatives - there... More
