Just got delivery. Half a piece of fish & little bits of chips. The naan was a pizza base & the chicken wings all bone. We're not fussy but that was the worst takeaway we've had. Wish we could get our money back!

Many items of the menu is not cooked anymore. Their previous extensive choice of beer is now gone. Nothing to clean your hands after your wings. Food quality was average. Dry meat, dry chips. Really not worth your money.

Food was poor, order incomplete with spicy (bland) chicken wings missing dip and random chicken-less bone thrown in, bacon missing from burger and sandwich. Terrible first impression!

Very disappointing. Many items off the menus and only told this after Order had already been taken. Service was incompetent. Food was average. Restaurant was very cold.
