We went for an evening meal because last time it was lovely. Sadly this time was totally different. I ordered breaded mushrooms and they were so hard I was luck not to shoot them onto the floor when trying to put my fork in them. I also ordered onion rings which were cold and swimming in grease. Not a happy... More

Came here with the family today and first impressions of the new menu was good. I ordered the new carnivore burger and for £12.25 I can say it's the worst burger I have ever had. It really is not hard to cook a burger but as you can see in the photo it was like a chargrilled piece of leather... More

Went out for lunch with my family. We ordered all of the together at the bar. The deserts came out first before we had been given starters/mains! Which was very strange. When I said we wanted our meals first, mine and my daughters came out, they said my sons was just coming. Me and my daughter had almost finished our... More

Nice food not a lot of vegetarian options when you aren't allowed soft cheeses because of being pregnant asked if I was allowed vegetarian lasagne with the carvery and they said no, husband had a sirloin steak and was a little disappointed as it look like a frying steak food was nice but not the best.

We had been to the supermarket and were looking for somewhere to have a quick meal. We saw the Kittiwake and thought we would give it a go. They had a carvery and a 2 for £10 offer. What a good deal.
