Nice grub and friendly staff in decent set up but drinks were very slow in coming then food especially desserts even longer. To give them credit they did refund us for the desserts. Overall a pleasant enough experience

I and my family stopped for lunch yesterday 3rd December. After a few minutes wait we were shown to a table on the upper level which I can only describe as a disgrace. The bench seat was stained and covered in dust as was the table. The cutlery was also stained and dirty. If this was the standard of the... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch and to put it mildly the service is shocking. We waited for around 7-10 minutes before we were led to our tables. In the process several employees walked pass but did not acknowledged us waiting. Once at the table we were given menus and were told someone will come to take our order. 20... More

We ordered two Sirloin steaks for lunch. One was good and the other was terrible being all gristle and was inedible. We had to send it back. The staff, who were very friendly, responded well but it did rather spoil our meal.The problem would seem to have been in the kitchen. As parking is shared with the Premier Inn it... More

The food was average, service is poor. Can't really recommend it.It's an odd shape and some of the seating can be in direct sunlight.

We came for sunday lunch with my 95 year old Granddad after the Remembrance service. We usually come every 6 months or so, the food was delicious as always and the staff are always friendly. Our waiter this time was Sean and he was great, he really went out of his way to make sure we had a nice lunch... More
