For a big restaurant as part of a national chain the Battle Axes has a very warm friendly atmosphere. Apart from a slightly over cooked Cobbler the food is very good value and there is an extensive choice. Sitting near the roaring open fire does make it a bit more special.

We booked for a midweek lunch. The server had reserved a good table by the window, but also in close proximity to the open fire. The service was friendly and informative and we were left to make our choices. The "Taste of Winter", menu was full of heartwarming options.

Nostalgic trip for my wife and I after 40 years of marriage. We used to come here often (our favourite restaurant) when it was THF. It has been extended a lot but we still enjoyed our visit!

Food was ok here not great! Slow service and as we were only a couple the bigger groups were getting more of the attention so it took a while to place our order. The staff are friendly I think they were a person down or two which made them all seem a little hectic.
