Great food and service! We went for a big family lunch. All the meals were great! I felt a little embarrassed when my niece's told the assistant manager he looked like a Legoman, but to his credit Adam took it very well! He even posed for a picture with their Lego- great job !! Will be back soon

I chose this place based on TripAdvisor reviews. I took some German colleagues and was hoping for something of quality. The menu was very basic and the service nothing special. It was a disappointment as the venue was inviting and promised more. Quality and delivery needs to be better. The return match in Mannheim this week was far superior. QED.

Food is perfect and lots to choose from. Service is always decent. Portions are good. Price is excellent. I took my in laws and mother here as previously me and my partner had been on several occasions and the food was amazing. 7 of us in total and I couldn't fault one thing about the evening.

Adults ordered the grilled chicken burger which is always good , 8 oz steak which was cooked just right and the children's meals we also ok. Didn't have to wait long and the staff were... More

Service slow and indifferent. Food quality variable at best. I ordered the rotisserie chicken on the strength of other reviews. It tasted like it had been cooked much earlier and reheated. My daughter ordered tomato and basil soup which is her favourite but she couldn't eat it. The salad accompanying another dish was limp, the nachos a soggy mess....

Plenty of choice on the menu, for both kids and adults. Very varied and plentiful menu for gluten free customers too. Service was not rushed, we were given plenty of time for each course without continuos interruption.

Eaten here a few times and enjoyed it every time. The staff are friendly, the menu is reasonably priced for pub food and they have a brilliant healthy selection too, with super salads, lean meats and fresh fish. If you don't fancy the healthy options then the Cookie and ice cream for dessert is to die for. They also do... More
