I was very reluctant to visit this establishment. The signs in front scream tourist trap - offers of unlimited spare ribs for €9,95 (surely it's more expensive at cost price!) and 10 shots of Jager for €10 signal one thing - that's to cram in as many tourists as possible, get them steaming drunk and feed them food that they'll have no memory eating never mind appreciating!
Despite my protests, everyone wanted to go. On arriving, the tables were dirty and the menus sticky. I protested one more time to leave but it was all in vain. I looked at the menu and found they did everything - red flag! How can a restaurant that does everything specialise in something and do it right when they have so many items to juggle?
Judging by the plates coming out, it was painfully obvious that a hotch potch of cheap ingredients were put together at overinflated prices. My friends then proceeded to order - one orders the Full English (he's American) and the other a French pancake. I have flatly refused to eat there and order a black coffee to keep the peace.
Ten minutes later, out come the plates. The Full English is entirely deep fried including the mushrooms! The bacon looked tired and was dripping in grease. The sausage didn't even qualify to be called a sausage due to its low meat content. Also, the bread was a cheap artifical white loaf which wasn't even toasted. The pancake wasn't a pancake - it was a foot long crepe with copious dollops of budget vanilla ice cream and whipped cream lathered all over it like shaving foam. Not good. The coffee was the "wisest" choice and even that wasn't without fault.
The ordeal was nearly over - we only had the bill left. Very expensive for the quality of ingredients. €11 for the Full English and €11 for the French pancake. I was charged €4 for a substandard cup of coffee. I was mad. There was an exceptional bakery 5 minutes from my hotel which served fantastic bread, cakes and pastries. I had eaten there the previous day for breakfast and got a freshly baked pastry and cup of coffee for under the €4 being charged for the coffee alone.
If you like to drink copious amounts of alcohol, watch sport and not care about the food you're putting into your body at extortionate prices, then this is the place for you.
If, on the other hand, you even remote care about your dining experience, then take my advice from the headline and avoid like the plague!
