Well thanks to the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to take my mum and sister ( visiting from Southampton) to this place. We needed somewhere that provided great food with both simple food, not to jazzed up for my mum and also quality veggie dishes for my sis. We were not disappointed, as we walked in, the place had a great ambience and friendly but not overbearing staff. We waited just a short time to be seated and began with some garlic bread and olives, both delicious. My mum commented on how nice the drinks were. The staff were attentive and obviously kept an eye on how fast/slow tables were eating and didn't constantly mither us which is just how I like it. They genuinely seem to want each and everybody to have a wonderful experience. Our main courses were a couple of rib eye steak Sunday lunches - delicious, plentiful and served looking like the chef took pride in each and every dish. My sis had veggie dauphinoise which when I saw it could have turned me - a staunch meat eater into a veggie myself! She said it was delicious. Mum had the mini fish and chips, this was presented on a square slate and looking ever so tasty which mum tucked into with a gusto! We were left for a short while to muse over what desserts to have and ended up choosing the sticky toffee pudding, chocolate fudge and some apple pie. They all came, piping hot with and assortment of custard, cream and ice cream as requested. The apple pie was shared between my mum and my partner and there wasn't a morsel left on either plate! All this and a bill for less than 80 quid?!! Yes you can go to cheaper places but I can honestly say that I couldn't fault this place, the food is portioned on the right side of 'filling', is pleasing on the eyes and gets the taste buds racing into overdrive. In fact seeing some of the starters being served they could pass as mains! If you need any more prompting my sister just texted to thank me and said my mum has been enthusing to all the family on what a great place I had taken them to - big browny points for me - thanks Waterside!! :-)
