We ate here recently for the first time in a long time, and there has been a nig improvement.

The food we had was lovely, decent prices, and the staff were amazing! Will be back!

“not great”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

I personally don't like this restaurant but it is always quite busy so others disagree with me. Too American diner for me and feel that staff don't give enough attention to customers. But go and how you would rare it

“Great food”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Went here as a party of 5, i only give 4 star for service as we did wait a bit, does people not understand that a place that size can get busy, so you would expect to wait a bit,in the end its worth waiting for, i had the turkey ham, two others had same, one had a fish dish, one had a chicken dish, not a clean plate in site, deserts were tasty too, couldve done with more christmas pudding, bit minchy on that, overal had lovely diner at a cheap price. Will be back

“Cant complain”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Heard a lot of mixed reviews on this place. Its got a massive projector for the football so big thumbs up there. The food, well my mate had a Christmas dinner which he hoovered up in 5 mins flat and said it was lovely. Id the 16oz tbone, asked for it rare and thats how it came, sides were hot, everything was tasty, service was pleasant so had a dessert, choc fuge cake for me with cream, nice but couldve done with an extra bit heating it up but no big deal. Friend had pavalova which he enjoyed. All in all was a nice meal. Went up to the bar to pay and the guy who took my card needed a shower, guy was stinkin. Perfect time to leave!
