Visited in the afternoon and had the chicken burger. It was ok but the roll wasn't the best. The 16 chips I had were ok, the usual frozen type. I think they were very understaffed as everyone was constantly busy. Edible but not delicious. Underwhelmed.

Hi, Yes, you can book a table for any day, the only time we do not accept bookings is when there is a match or event on in the stadium next door. Many thanks.
