A very nice lunch today. The service was excellent as was the food and the wine. It was very busy, but that made no difference to the service. One thing let's it down . Cheap stodgy pale fresh stick

Another consistent meal here with solid service and a bottle of French Cabernet Sauvignon in a modern style including a screw top! We also like the cafe style decor and the 3 different ground level eating areas. We do however find the menu static with the things listed as "new" being recycled from previous older menus like the French Onion... More

We ate here for an early evening meal with our daughter just before Christmas, and were very happy (as always). The waiters are always very nice to her, which she loves and we find the food to be very good. There is a reasonable selection of wine, and we find the atmosphere to be friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

I went here as a celebratory meal with my mom and her friend. We had a 50% off voucher and decided to treat ourselves to a garlic bread sharing board (very tasty, although my only complaint is that there needs to be way more garlic butter/sauce on the side!) which was well presented. I ordered a sirloin steak medium rare... More

Not very good value for money. The food is ok, just. The fish and chips looked grey, but the Beetroot and Goats cheese tart was very good. The Boeuf Bourginion was delicious but tiny. Desserts were also overpriced. It was only ok and if we hadn't had a voucher code we would have been even less happy.

Food was very basic and service was pretty poor. We didn't get much attention from our waiter - was pretty disappointed.
