“Anagram of carp”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This place is anti-food. Its all ready meals and ding ding cooking. My chicken was so covercooked it was like leather and dry.
Dont go here, even if you want a value meal there are lots of other better places.

“Too many choices.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

When a pub/restaurant offers 25 specials plus a full menu something has to suffer and the two for one offer adds to the limited quality of the food. My hickory chicken lacked flavour and was only saved by the sprinkling of cheese. The chips are crisp but a little dry and also somewhat tasteless. My wife had the light fish and chips which was reasonable but very ordinary even with the proclaimed beer batter.

Thursday lunchtime was busy with mostly elderly couples and groups who must prefer the unsophisticated menu and rather bland flavours.

Other pub chains make a much better job of this sort of offer delivering tasty food for a similar price.

“wide variety”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not haute cuisine, but good good well presented. Variety of specials and 2 for 1 great value. Excellent cheerful service. Gateau is a two person portion and really nice

“This was one apple-cart we weren't upset with”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Plenty of tables. Extensive specials board. A two for one menu. The mixed grill was massive and great value but make sure you're hungry.

“Sadly disappointing”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We made a return trip to this local eatery at a busy time. We were seated quickly and ordered food & drinks. They took some time to arrive but the standard of the food was disappointing. I had chicken in BBQ sauce; there were literally only 2 small pieces of chicken. A friend had pork & lentils which was cold. My food was hot, but the waitress gloved-up to protect herself from burns, passed me the plate to give to my friend!

I appreciate this is a 2 for 1 deal, but the food has to be of a better standard even at this price point. Stick to the grilled stuff if eating here.
