Myself and my partner have been here loads of times and up until the last few months it has been fantastic. The last 2 times however have been disgraceful. The first time we were shown to seats straight away however we were left for half an hour with no one coming near us to take a drink or food order, so we left. Most recent was last week when we went in hoping for better. Again we were shown seats straight away and our orders were taken fairly quickly however the waitress sounded bored and in a hurry even though the place was quiet. When the food arrived it was a disappointment the garlic seasoned fries were sat in a bowl of garlic oil which wasn't noticeable till the top ones were eaten and I had to eat the burger (which was bland) with a knife and fork, the nap just fell to pieces and everything kept falling on the table, which was sticky to begin with. When a complaint was raised the staff member was very uninterested and asked would we like her to pass the message on. My partner commented on Facebook also whilst tagging them and they removed the comment saying we should have made a complaint if we were unhappy.!!! NEVER EVER AGAIN WILL I BE BACK.

Me and my family go out for dinner here all the time. The food is delicious and their milkshakes are divine! There is a lot to chose from on the menu and also a lot of sides to choose from! The side usually comes along with your main course. I usually go for Arthurs Chilli Chicken Melt as I love spicy food, although it's not too spicy the sauce is lovely. Service is usually fine and I always have a good meal here.

Sat for 20mins before we got to place an order when main course arrived had to ask again for drinks we asked for before the starter. Terrible staff not interested one girl lying over top of the bar just looked lazy. Table top was sticky and unclean WOULD NOT RECOMEND
