We visited this restaurant for lunch and to put it mildly the service is shocking. We waited for around 7-10 minutes before we were led to our tables. In the process several employees walked pass but did not acknowledged us waiting. Once at the table we were given menus and were told someone will come to take our order. 20... More

We ordered two Sirloin steaks for lunch. One was good and the other was terrible being all gristle and was inedible. We had to send it back. The staff, who were very friendly, responded well but it did rather spoil our meal.The problem would seem to have been in the kitchen. As parking is shared with the Premier Inn it... More

The food was average, service is poor. Can't really recommend it.It's an odd shape and some of the seating can be in direct sunlight.

We came for sunday lunch with my 95 year old Granddad after the Remembrance service. We usually come every 6 months or so, the food was delicious as always and the staff are always friendly. Our waiter this time was Sean and he was great, he really went out of his way to make sure we had a nice lunch... More

Food good. Great value. Only downside is that the restaurant could be nearly empty and they make you wait for a table.???. Don't know if this is policy but not good when you want to sit and pore over the menu. Other than this minor thing we can't fault it.

This place must be avoided at all costs. I am not exaggerating when I say that it took twenty three minutes to get a drink, I even went to the bar to get one myself and there were three staff pouring their own and flicking each other with straws. The waitress told me three times that the drinks were free... More
