Dropped in for lunch today and was impressed by the blackboard burger offering, served with excellent chips and a good salad. The burger was designed to be cut rather than held to eat because of its size. Very rasty and well presented. Staff were friendly...More

I've always been a 'Bite to Eat' fan, singing it's praises but today I was sadly disappointed. I ordered a vegan burger with artichoke relish and sweet potato fries. Nowhere on this listing did it mention this dish would be 'hot' (chilli hot). Had I...More
