Had a really lovely family meal here yesterday. Food was delicious, service from Gillian was excellent and it was all very reasonably priced.

Starters great. Fish main great. But the burger - wow. It's a disaster. Staff didn't ask how the meal was at any point, despite 3/4 of the burger going back. Won't be back.

Problem with this place is it run on an absolute shoestring. Ordering food, one is frequently told that such and such is "off". Customers ordered drinks at the bar by asking was their choice "on" and were plainly regulars used to their beer of choice...More

We visited The White Elephant today for lunch. It is was very disappointing. The place is dirty and needing cleaned & painted. We were in the kids section so that the children could play. Nice idea but their cleaning standards need reviewed. The tables, floor...More
