We were given a menu to look at and soon after we were shown to our table. The Menu was extensive so it was hard to make a choice, steaks, burgers. I selected the Bistro... More

Usually have a good meal here but went yesterday and it wasn't great, got the club sandwich, 2 small bits of bread with soggy lettuce, a small amount of chicken, and one slice of tomato, not what I would expect when paying £8.50. Plates weren't cleared, no offer of desserts or teas and coffee.

Great place for relaxed family dining. Mid range prices. Friendly service. Can be a bit chilly early in the evening and can be a bit noisy for intimate conversation.

One thing about the restaurant is the high ceiling giving a more cold atmosphere. Found the food to be reasonable, wouldn't use this for a special night out.
