The tables/cutlery weren't even set out when we got there so had to stand about for a good half an hour while the waiters shifted tables around us so it was uncomfortable as we felt we were getting in the way.

If your visiting Whitehaven please... More

We went for the beer and food night where they matched local ales with really fantastic food. The oxtail lollypops were stunning and the salt beef sandwich was something none of us had tasted before. We will certainly ALL be back 😀

We had our Christmas party yesterday and opted for the buffett. It was delivered tapas style to the table and there was a fantastic mix of high quality food and more than enough for us all.

Been twice for an evening meal, once with a colleague and once on my own. Good food, and a reasonable selection of beers. Service was ok, if a little slow to get drinks served at the table.

. Nowhere to drink before seated to eat. booked for ten but table for 8 - another table added when requested. Couldnt find a decent starter, Sirloin steak tough and chewy. Bottle of red sent back as unacceptable. Sevice good but must get it right first time.
