We went on a Tuesday night, and the theme was Maltese Night. The food was delicious and kept to the theme :) The prices are reasonable... we definitely got our money's worth. The staff were immensely nice, and checked on us occasionaly to see that all was well. Highly recommended

We booked the Tabloid just 30 mins before we arrived at the restaurant. From the phone call till the coffee ...the experience was great. The food is varied and 5star standard, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere is great.

The restaurant has all facilities to cater for children, with a child buffet table, entertainment and activities and am ice cream table and chocolate fountain.

The price is really competitive with free flow water and wine all throughout.

All in all...we enjoyed this Sunday lunch thoroughly ...highly recommended

We had already been to Sunday lunch at the Tabloid and knew it offered a toddler friendly environment. This time round, Snow-white and Little Mermaid, came to our table and asked our 4 yr old if he wanted to join the children's activities, which he did. The buffet was very generous and of good quality. The Asian selection is top notch and the desert spread was divine, chocolate fountain and all. Our son had lots of options, nuggets, pastas but loved the ravioli best, taking nuggets as a main! Hands down the best quality place for family Sunday lunch. Strongly recommended.

We went on a Saturday night and we were greeted by a fish night. The food was lovely but above all the service was excellent. Thumbs up to all involved.

One or two people have complained via Tripadvisor that the food was poor - are they sure they were in the right restaurant? Every evening we found we were spoilt for choice. If there was somethig you did not particularly like no problem - move on to find something you do. Everyone was catered for, veggies and carnivors alike. My waistline and scales can vouch for the quality!
