What's not to like. Went on Saturday night and had 2 superb courses for £8. Portions same size as normal despite being on offer. The two of us ate and drank for £20 so that's great value for me.

Last minute thought we would go out for a meal somewhere local. Wish we hadn't bothered, seated quickly mains were in front of us in good time but waited an hour for the deserts to follow. Has really put us off going again!!

We had a lovely meal at the thrasher there was 11 of us and all meals were lovely. The staff were kind enough to bring out the cake for the birthday girl for us as well.

Went to the Thrasher and all I got to experience was a long wait. 15mins to wait to order! Ran out of time and had to leave! Shocking slow staff!
