Last minute decision to go out for family meal. Booked over phone but no need as very quiet. Having been before we looked forward to a lovely meal.
We were advised that if we downloaded their app we would receive 20% off our order. The order went through but our food took an hour to be presented. The sizzling dinners didn't sizzle, looking quite sad and only just warm. The roast beef dinners included raw carrots and peas which were cold. The beef consisted of mainly fat and grizzle. Cold gravy, yuk!
The kids meals were inconsistent. The fish fingers were overcooked and baked beans were cold. The mash and sweetcorn were ok. Chocolate pizza dessert went down well with the children.
Considering the restaurant appeared so quiet I don't understand why the quality of our meal was so poor.
The staff were pleasant enough and did warm my meal up.
This is a cheap eat restaurant but surely the food should be enjoyable?
I hope our experience wasn't due to the fact we got 20% off!
This experience was very different to our last, enjoyable meal about 18 months ago.
Come on, you have a lovely building, fill it with happy costumers who want to come back for more.

We were staying in the Premier next door for the night. We had a great evening meal there and would definitely recommend, good value for money, cant say the same for the Premier Inn breakfast they provide, They initially got our orders wrong and the standard of the food is very bad, in particular the dried out nasty scrambled egg, not worth the £9.50 that is charged.

Kealy is amazing on the bar, super quick remembers your drink order and most of the time your food order if you regularly visit! Always busy and works her socks off and always has a smile and a warm hello when you walk in .... Amazing customer service! Debbie is also very friendly and acknowledges us everytime we visit! If it wasn't for these two ladies we would definitely go elsewhere.
