Prebooked a Christmas Buffet at £9.99 pp and none of us was disappointed. Table set out in all the festive decorations and food (both hot and cold) put onto tables on time. Fabulous selection and so much given that we packed everything that couldn't be eaten into containers to take home with us so as to eat up tomorrow so...

Frozen chips in this day and age... really? Major let down when the corresponding food is so good. Not keen on the boards that the food is served on also, trying to make the place something it's not. Would also be nice if the staff asked you if everything was ok with the meals, perfect time to ask for more...

Yes the place needs abit of a makeover however that shouldn't take away from...

The setup here is much as you'd expect from these chain pups - order at the bar, give them your table number and a waiter brings your food. Good standard of food and service and great value for money but the place is a bit tired. Paint worn off on the doors to the toilets, gents door sticking and not...

The steak was cooked to my liking and the fish...

Very busy at lunchtimes on weekends. Astonishingly reasonable prices for both food and drink. Very friendly staff, always service with a smile and pleasant atmosphere. £8.99 2-meal deal: Fish & Chips excellent, Mac & Cheese very good and the others good. But I would avoid the Steak Pie as dry and has a strange taste. The Cheesy Potato Pie is...
