“A very disappointing meal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

I have been twice to this restaurant and was disappointed the first time but gave it the benefit of the doubt. Wish I hadn't, where to start.

Firstly some heating would of been nice, the food was terrible you could make a whole lot better at home it tasted like it was out of a tin, watery and tasteless. I have eaten at a lot of restaurants and this is one of the worst I have been too. A waste of money.

I'd give it a miss, save your money and find somewhere else.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Been to this place many many times and never had a bad meal, great for family birthdays, great kids menu. The food is delish and so is the wine :-) the only thing I would recommend is the bill being printed out so people people can spilt it easy if in groups as its hard to make the current bill out........ Keep up the great service :-)

“Disappointing very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Really enjoyed this restaurant over the years but after the last two visits it is easy to see they have cut the food quality, watered down the sauces and it felt that the service was rushed all to maximise profits I suppose. There are plenty of decent restaurants in the area so I would avoid this at all costs!!!

“Hard work to build a good reputation, but very easy to destroy it!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Been going to this restaurant for the last 10 years..... ALWAYS the food has been top notch.....NOT THIS TIME!!

For the first time ever (we hadnt visited for around 3 months) - the food was very poor. Quality has been cut, sauces taste watered down, and service is rushed. Feels like quality has been cut to increase profit margins - and attempted to be hidden by fancy new plates.

With so many good restaurants in the local area - they need to get back to there old ways, and start to produce again!!

“Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Food poor. The food showed no imagination and did not seem to be freshly cooked , just reheated. Very disappointing as previously we have always enjoyed the food. Wont be visiting again for some time.
