“Good food and service”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We were to Hector's to have diner and were not disappointed. We arrived around 8:45 pm and the staff kindly told us that it was a busy night and food orders could delayed. The food arrived around 20 minutes after we ordered, a half roasted chicken and a pork belly. I must add that the pork belly was really good, crispy skin and very soft meat. The chicken was well cooked and was not dry. Finally desserts were delicious! I ordered the sticky toffee pudding and it was really good.
We will definitely go back, very good food, correct prices and good service.

“Food good, service dreadful”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We are here tonight. The table is sticky, we had to ask twice for it to be cleaned. But my biggest gripe is that one of my friends is pregnant and we have had to fight to get her a cup of tea after spending over £200 on food this evening. The man behind the bar is nothing short of rude. Great food, appalling service.

“Easy friendly and one of our favourites”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Went for after work eat and drinks here - very nice indeed !! Menu is varied - great 2 courses for £8.50 !! Service relaxed and staff interested on customers ... Bit of a country feel in the city as few Labradors and friends seem just as happy here as the customers ... Actually - don't go in a Sunday as I want a seat too please !

“disappointed”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

was so looking forward to eating here as it looks so good from the outside but I was so disappointed! waitresses were poor and service was slow. one of them forgot to bring our drinks! (she did apologise) food was Luke warm when it came but was ok. the steak was pretty good. the dessert had too many big flakes of salt ( chocolate caramel salted cheesecake ) just felt as if the staff didn't care and to be honest couldn't wait to leave. sorry won't be back.

Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Visited for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated then ignored being provided with neither a menu or any further service. Left and went somewhere else.
