“over rated, over priced.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

First visit, and after reading previous reviews we were somewhat apprehensive given the mixed reviews, however, we would not prejudge.

The first experience was with the bar staff who immediately made you feel that you were disturbing their night by being there, pretty much unwelcoming. (Drinks are very expensive, think London prices and you are close)

Food, menu very very limited, and very expensive. You're talking double figures for a basic pizza! That gives an indication as to the costing of this place.

Food arrived quite quickly, well four out the five ordered did, the fifth arrived just close to when the other four in the party were finishing theirs.

The waitress serving our table was pleasant, and that's the only real positive.

Everyone in the party seemed to arrive at the same conclusion, over rated place, over rated food and certainly over inflated prices.

It could have simply been a one off for the place, (Seeing other reviews) which is unfortunate, but it served to ensure that we would not return.

“Over rated”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went as a recommendation
However, Luke warm starter and difficult to slice sirloin steak is not what I would expect for £35.00.
I do not see me and my party going back
Over rated
Over priced
And frankly very very disappointing!

Good atmosphere, food excellent. Equally nice just for drinks. Always a pleasant evening out with friends - good excuse to get glad rags on!

“drinks only”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I have been here on a few occasions as it is local. Staff friendly, good service. There is plenty of outdoor seating but perhaps could do with a bit more inside.
