Had a meal here on a Sat evening and it was very nice food as it always has been The beer was nice and cold but the service is always a challenge for the staff.Every time we have been the service has been different and this time was no different but it did not spoil the evening.The food is the main part of the evening and this was excellent.We shall return when we are celebrating again.

Arrived at 7.30 for 7.45 booking. Seated at 8.10. It was very busy.
Starters arrived 9.00 then mains around 10.00. Food was about average, nothing spacial. Looked as if all our dishes had been sitting in the kitchen for some time, as a skin had formed on top. It was pointless complaining, otherwise we'd never get out food.
Afterwards spoke to the manager who explained they were a chef down in the kitchen. All the staff had to do is to tell the customers then there may not have been so many people fed up waiting.
It seemed they were concentrating more on the take away customers not the ones in the restaurant.
Will not be returning soon.

Just had a very good meal here, very busy but not a problem very good service & very tasty food. The restaurant is immaculate & the staff very pleasant, more expensive than some but worth it.
