“Nice Tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Called for early dinner ,there were quite a few in but we were seated quickly and our drinks order was taken, we got our drinks and the main order was taken . We have been here before and the format remains as it was when it opened years ago that said its usually been good. We both opted for the combo platter I had ribs and shrimp and my partner had pork and chicken both meals were satisfactory we did not wait long either . As we ate early we got the combo offer available before 6 pm £30 for the 2 of us inc drinks not bad we will call again if in the area. p/s the onion loaf is always winner.

“Make sure you book an hour earlier than you want to eat”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Rang up at 8 to see if in the off chance they would be table for 8.30. Was told yes that won't be a problem. Got there and after over a 40 min wait for the table gave up and went home. Don't take bookings for tables you don't have! If I was told it would be after 9 we would never have bothered. They must have known at 8 how busy they were. Poor service and probably won't return again.

“Not worth waiting for.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Booked a table for 7.30 on Tuesday 19th August, was kept waiting for nearly 45 minutes. When we eventually got to our table, we placed our order and when we eventually got it they had forgotten our drinks and onion loaf. When the bill came we were changed for the drinks we didn't get and the onion loaf we also hadn't had! Would not recommend this restaurant.

“You know what to expect!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Called in for late lunch / early dinner aware the reviews are only average. Damon's has been on the go years and simply hasn't changed. The layout is the same, the dining format is the same and the menu has varied little over the years but at least you know what to expect from them! On a positive note the service was efficient and attentive, the food was hot, well prepared and good portions, because we ate before 6pm we also received reductions on 2 meals and a foc child's meal. There are better value eateries but Damon's is somewhat familiar and exactly as it always has been.

“Was as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Visited here as a family get together, they managed the table of 12 well. Coming here brought back memories long since past. The service was efficient and the food was as expected for the price point. It tastes nice however does have a chain restaurant feel to it.

I had the ribs as my memories kicked in as they had the best ribs ever however I ordered the full rack of ribs and it was fairly small.

All in all a good meal and fairly priced but wouldn't rave about it like I used to.
