Visited here for a birthday lunch whilst at meadowhall shopping. Was very busy when we arrived so had to wait for a table but that was understandable.
Once seated service was very slow throughout our meal. Table wasn't set correctly and we mentioned this when we sat down but nothing was done.
We had the £9.99 set menu which was very good value and the actual food was hot and tasty!
Had to ask repeatedly for our drinks though and service was so slow it was unreal.
The salad bar was not replenished regularly either.
Overall an ok lunch and think the slowness was down to sheer volume of people.

Just eaten here for the second time in a month. Had the two course + unlimited soft drinks for £9.99. I had the gourmet burger and my wife had gammon. Good quality well cooked food - ok it's not Michelin Star but it's freshly prepared and served in a pleasant environment.

Thank Paul H

Instead of paying £8.25 each for the Premier breakfast was drove over to Harvester. Admittedly it only costs a few pounds less, but at least it is cooked fresh. The server was polite and the coffee was very nice. The restaurant was fairly quite - only after we were in two/three more tables were used. There is not a lot of choice on a Sunday early in Meadowhall. The food was very hot and the cook does the best they can with the cheap ingredients they get. I chose the small breakfast at £3.99 but there were lots of other choices including healthier ones. All completely edible so long as you don't have too high expectations it is fine.
