Although the food here is very nice, the staff and customer service is beyond terrible. It was actually shocking how little they cared about their customers being happy. I’ve eaten here twice. First time my friend was given food she hadn’t ordered. Ok, people make...More

Strange place..! No flow or atmosphere and the waitresses seem aloof. To be fair, we both had pasta and each dish was presented well and was ok. With so many other places to eat in this area, we would not return to this venue

I eat here regularly as it's close to where I work and we benefit from a 50% discount on food at lunchtime. If it wasn't for the discount, I would rarely eat here at all. I mainly eat one of their salads or their omelettes,...More

Wanted ribs but wife wanted Chinese - easy they own the takeaway next door so ordered both and enjoyed! Can be a bit loud at times when showing football on Tv's but would recommend breakfast (full english under 5 euros), lunch & dinner.
