Came for a meal and a quick drink one evening when our own hotel decided to not serve food after 7pm (even though we checked in at 6.50pm).
The place is what it is, a Wetherspoon type place serving cheap and reasonable food.
The portion sizes were quite generous, the food hot and ordinary.
When I ordered at the bar the man serving me was a bit aloof and remote, and had more time for his mates at the bar, but later at the table he was quite friendly? Go figure? People working in service industries should realise that the tone of their voice, their expressions, their manners are all part of the experience and can put people off.
The food was served quickly, was nothing out of the ordinary but also we had nothing to complain about. If you go to eat in an establishment that is open from breakfast to supper then you take your chance sometimes with whoever is in the kitchen at that particular point in time; as another reviewer has discovered to their obvious dislike.
The clientele was a mixture of mature couples, families and youngsters just in for the drink. Nothing rowdy, and as I said, we could have been in a Wetherspoon and we wouldn't have known the difference.
