“Hmmm”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Ok so Southampton is not the gourmet capital of England so my expectations were not that high.
And I had fish and chips off the special menu... But, this is the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen. Wow. If I can attach the picture I will.
Staff nice.
Menu mundane.
But top notch compared to the greasy takeaways that seem the norm here

“A good group dinner”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

On the recommendation of fellow conference delegates, I dined with a party of 15. The restaurant's menu offers a wide selection of meals to suit most diets and budgets. The food was good and the friendly, efficient service combined with laid-back atmosphere made for a very enjoyable evening.

“Excellent Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I've only been here for Sunday lunch but haver never been disappointed with either the food or the service.
There is a car park at the rear so don't be put off by the appearance of no parking. There is a lovely decked area at the front which is lovely in the summer and they sell a wide variety of types of teas and coffees.
Sunday lunch is fabulous, good home cooked food with lots of meat and a good selection of veg (about 4) plus roast potatoes all included in the price. I recommend the roast loin of pork with crackling, stuffing and apple sauce, always great but sadly doesn't leave any room for pudding!
Staff are friendly and helpful. There's nothing not to like so go!

Great Sunday lunch today, burgers were great as well a fish cakes. Didn't go for the roasts but they looked huge. As always relaxed atmosphere and attentive service from Bridgette and her team.
