Came here with a few friends after being recommended several times. Service from waitress with short dark hair was exceptional, friendly, warm and more than helpful. Food, cannot knock at all, brilliant food and not too expensive. However, I was shocked when the manager of the restaurant decided to take the mick out of one of her members of staff in front of the restaurant, he said "goodbye everyone" as he left the restaurant, bearing in mind there was only a few tables left in the place. Then, the manager mocked him as soon as he was out of earshot, mimicking what he had just done. Then the manager seemed to disappear during the restaurants busier periods leaving 2 waiting on staff and the bar woman to manage on their own. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and always seem to be smiling, but when they are around their manager they all seem very tense and on edge. After reading some other reviews, it seems the food itself is brilliant, with a service to match, young girl working the till/bar was also polite and friendly, as was the waiting on staff, but the manager seriously needs to work on how she treats her staff, truly appalling.

Visited Winstons tonight around 7:30pm 4th June 2013. Had been recommended by a number of friends so I decided to try it. Walked in it seemed a very cosy place to eat with a nice atmosphere. The food was fantastic and the young girl serving us was very efficient and a credit to herself then the whole atmosphere changed. To see the manger shouting at the female chef was an utter disgrace, this shows the female manager clearly has poor people skills and a lack of respect for her staff to do this in front of customers, should this not be done back of house? I work in catering as a manger and have never seen this happen before! I will never visit here again after this experience!

Came here with my husband for our 30 year wedding anniversary and my grandson, found the waiter Lauren very lovely welcomed us into the restaurant with a big smile and made us feel at home, was very chatty with my grandson, gave him goodies and balloons and also some coloring to keep him quiet!
Food was brought in no time, was very busy but service was fab.
Met the manager who was very lovey also, lovely place to eat and dine money was definitely well spent.
Will be returning, most definitely, without my grandson this time!

Went here as everybody had recommended it and it has award winning pizza. It did live up to its name. The service was great and staff very friendly. The whole place had a good atmosphere and it was very busy. The food arrived very quickly and the pizza was delicious. The best tasting pizza I have ever had! Would go back to take my friends and family.

Only had garlic bread and pizzas but would sooner come here than pizza hut any day. Young waitress was very pleasant and attentive. There is a children's menu. Only criticism is we were not given a choice of base and found the large crust very filling.
We will call again .
