“Reliably excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Have been many times. There is never anything to complain about. The food is excellent. It represents good value all the time, but especially before 6pm.

“Never any problems”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

It could be annoying for some people, because try as you may you won't find anything to complain about. The food and service are excellent, and the staff genuinely friendly. The £6 menu is too early for us, but we always get good value for money. If we go to the area for a week, we eat here at least 3 times. Always comparing everywhere else with Hele Billys. A business that deserves to do well. Looking forward to next year already. Oh and free wi-fi that works!
