Have eaten here a few times and the food is always nice enough. Ate during the week for lunch. It is never v busy, and in fact there was only 1 or 2 other tables there when we arrived. Still unable to have the 2 course lunch within one hour, so if you have work to get back to, don't... More

Over priced... Ok service...decor more like a doctors surgery... Chicken coujons were just batter, garlic fries were frozen skinny chips with garlic oil poured over.. Very poor experience of eating out experience. Service was poor when clearing plates away was no opportunity to comment. Over priced poor food

Ate in this restaurant this week, and I will not rush back. The food was not good at all, and over priced for what it was. The décor is awful, and the atmosphere in the place was so dull.

Called in with my husband for lunch recently. Seated promptly and menu explained by friendly waitress. Mains took quite a while to come out and we were starving! They were tasty and we both cleared our plates. Dessert took a long time to arrive as well and it was rock hard Pavlova- so hard I actually couldn't eat it. No-one... More

Service was excellent , early bird menu quite extensive and offered a good varied choice. Food was quickly served which is great when dining with children. Staff were very pleasant and food was tasty. Only negative was I would have liked to have seen a wine list. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely eat here again

Never had a bad meal. Love the earlybird menu when you get three courses for the price of the main course

Went to Simplicity for a birthday treat. Had the soup (carrot and coriander) for starter and the pork with black pudding as my main. Both were brilliant! Girlfriend ordered Crayfish popcorn for starter and Lamb for main. The portions were very reasonable for such low prices. Our waitress was an English lady (who's name was Emma I think!!) she was...

This is a lovely restaurant with lovely private booths which is lovely. Went for lunch with a friend. They had a free starter with any main course purchased. Prices started from £5.95. They had a really good choice and staff were very friendly and helpful. When mine came I thought it looked lovely but it didn't taste as I thought... More
