Revisited the El Cid after being advised by a friend that things had changed. What a turn around, friendly staff (and smiles) excellent service, great food and a good varied menu. We will be returning.

Have been visiting this restaurant for the last four years, once again the food was very good, can highly recommend the liver and bacon. The staff are very friendly and service excellent. Will be returning in the near future.

Lots to chose from but a little dear when you consider everything is separately priced. Better value meal of the day elsewhere but setting was nice and staff friendly and accommodating.

Every Friday there is a charity auction starting at 1.00, with good quality items for sale. Fast and efficient. Lovely surroundings, great coffee and light meals available. We did so well we are going back today!
