Not a lot of choice on the menu. And a few drinks that we ordered came in dirty glasses but my food I had was nice, I enjoyed mine. Atmosphere was nice. But I wouldn't rush to go back.

We visited without a booking at lunch time. Wasn't too busy so managed to get a table without waiting. Good food, wraps sandwiches chips etc. Coffees came with a free macaroon which was a bonus. Friendly staff & decent prices.

Always raved about Oscars as visited for years and always been great. Sadly not this time, I had to send my food back as I could barely cut into it and the chips were no where near as nice as the usual oscars standard. Some...More
