We went on a weeknight, Wednesday i think it was and the place was very busy. I dont like packed restaurants because usually the food takes ages, but we ordered our food and had to sit outside as they had no indoor tables. This was fine as it was a nice night. Whole place had a nice atmosphere.
I took our 3 kids for a walk through the nice gardens just across the road, we even found a kids playground 60m or so away which they had a lot of fun at. By the time we had walked back to our table the food was there waiting for us, took 15 mins or so which was very impressive.
Food was great, kids wedges and chips were huge servings and so were our meals. The salad bar was well stocked and everything was hot and salads were varied. Even had unlimited sauce for the chips :)
We were going to have desert but everyone was too full. We will go back again, definitely.
