Came here with a group of friends on a Friday evening. We managed to get a table for 7 booked at very short notice (1 hour) . Although that was great for us, most other places were fully booked. I have been here before and I still find it to be a place you come to if you can't book... More

The chicken pâté starter was quality quality however tasted ok; Others felt theirs were mediocre. After a short but appropriate wait the mains came, mine consisting of a well-cooked however small piece of Sea Bass and some undercooked but alright tasting vegetables... More

This restaurant does the best variety of salads in this area. The burgers are very good too.My husband is a great lover of their sausage and mash and the chicken goujons are enormous and the potato wedges are to die for. Didn't have pudding ----too full ! Service is good and didn't have to wait long for our food. Plenty... More

This was a family favorite and has been looking after many over 40 years ! So it seems to have changed hands , menu is the usual that passes for British cuisine but have they forgotten what gave them the edge ? With good food you need great service and sadly the nonchalant and offhand approach will only lead to... More

Went on Xmas eve for the set dinner rather than cooking on Xmas day. For the cost a little disappointing. First thing to say was the temperature in the restaurant. Had we have not paid a deposit I'd have left immediately. Way too hot and, although the staff agreed to turn it off it just got warmer. Really sweating by... More

Went with four friends. The food was very good as was the service. One small point wecwere placed in a corner at the back of the righthand side of the restaurant and there was no overhead lighting. We found this to be very gloomy and whilst we did not want bright lighting above the table, it did require at least... More

After visiting the black tiles for a Christmas meal with my work colleagues I can happily say this is a venue I'd happily visit again. Service was good and quite organised, drinks were reasonably priced and the entertainment was exactly what you'd expect.

This is close to my work and have been many times with work colleagues over the years for week day lunch and generally find the bar food of a good standard. However, I was left feeling disappointed on my most recent visit - an early evening meal with family in the restaurant. This started with placing a drinks order, which... More

We dropped in Friday lunchtime as it looked a lovely place to eat. The welcome was friendly and the food varied - especially the specials menu. I had the beef chow main which was expertly cooked and delicious. My partner was less impressed with her salad as it was almost all lettuce! We'd highly recommend the pear and apple crumble... More
