Had a very pleasant experience having lunch here with a girlfriend and her little girl. The waiter was very helpful and friendly, food was good.

Sadly our experience was not great, service was very slow and not very good, I have a real problem with waiters who address two female dinners as 'Guys all the time'. Food was OK, but nothing special, non alcoholic cocktails not great either.

We ate here for our Valentine's (+ husband celebrating new job) meal. As always, service was second-to-none. Food was quick considering how busy Valentine's evening usually is, and the only thing I can criticise is that we were waiting a little time for our second drink. Great portion sizes and the menu changes often so there's always something new to try. Staff are great.

Visited on a Saturday night, without having booked, for 4. They said a table would be available in about 20 mins, they were right, :-) Great stuff!

That's where the good ends! In short... The menu is short and uninteresting, food was cold and Bland! Only thumbs up was the pud my son had 'rocky road sundae'

Have to say though our waitress was good, very attentive!

Won't be returning :-(

We visited this establishment during a busy lunch time on a Saturday and it was all very disappointing. I asked if they accepted Taste Card and did not get a response, we were just given the menus. For £2.40 I expected a bit more than coke on the tap and for nearly £12.00 I expected a grilled chicken burger from the adults menu, it was very small serving, as was the side order. It was very carb heavy and the dish needs much more protein, in other words a grilled chicken breast that matches the price. Beware they automatically add 10% tip to the bill (optional), I asked for it to be removed. Not worth it, most defiantly felt like mass production of very low quality. Go somewhere else, don't waste your money.
