Food was awful, they'd run out of the house special (goat curry) by 7:30 even though the place was almost empty, service was ok apart from being called 'guys' every time the staff spoke to us. Will avoid this pirate place like the black plague in future.

A group of us turned up on a Saturday night ill-prepared having not booked a table! We were greeted at the door by a cheeky chap of a pirate and within a couple of minutes even though they looked rather busy we had a table set up for us. We were made aware there may be a bit of a wait but the drinks kept flowing and our server kept checking back on us so we never felt forgotten! To our surprise the food arrived within the half hour and all looked and tasted great... one of the best steaks I've had recently! We all thouroughly enjoyed ourselves and even joined in with the pirate antics!

Visited here after reading some good reviews but it was the most awful meal we have had in a long time. The offer 2 4 1 on sizzlers appears good but not when the ribs are tough and unedible! The sizzlers came with lots of untasty chips which was not stated on the menu and no veg or anything. The steak on the sizzler had no flavour and was tiny. The chicken wings for starter were very poor with a limp 'side salad'! The place was empty yet it still took the staff ages to come over. When asked if everything was ok at the end and said no there was no apology or explanation just a blank response from the waitress!

I thought this would be a laugh when we passed it in the day but the food was mediocre and right in town which was not too good for families on a Saturday night. Wasn't bad but wasn't great!

We celebrated a family birthday here last week and were delighted with the food, which was reasonably priced and cooked very well, the atmosphere, which was fun and friendly, and the service, which was superb, we'll definitely return.
