The disadvantage to the place is that it is just an ordinary place with no unique reason to go. Apart from that, it's great for parties ( as it's very near the cinema!)

I used to love going here - liked the food, the atmosphere, the cocktail pitchers etc. Our food was awful, the staff ran around patting each other's bottoms and screeching in flirtation with each other - staff coming out of the kitchen and bellowing across the restaurant at other staff - it was like being in a sixth form common room. The food was almost inedible, just ghastly. Caesar salad was shredded and browning iceburg lettuce, drenched in sauce topped with dodgy tasting chicken. I won't be going again. A shame, I always liked the concept of this brand. I'm sorry to say this, but I strongly advise against going here, I won't be returning.

4 x Adults n 1 x Child ate lunch here today, as normally food at F&B is Ok, However. . . .
On entering noticed that it wasn't too busy but did take a little time to be acknowledged and seated by the staff.
Drinks were ordered and they duly arrived, we did at the same time as ordering the drinks order some Dough Balls . These arrived with an enormous blob of garlic butter on top, and when they were sampled, found they were cold. Notified a member of staff, who promptly apologised and took them away, later returning with some hot ones and more apologies.
4 x main meals and 1 x Childs meal, (which included a desert) were ordered and eventually arrived. Once again we had to summon a waiter to advise that two of the meals were not complete and missing side dishes, more apologies. Long delay for child's desert after prompts
Overall Service was slow and food only luke warm.
Not impressed.

Service not very good, food even worse. Would not recommend, there are better places to eat in the area.

We had lunch today at the Clifton Moor restaurant and upon arrival were seated immediately as it was fairly quiet.
Food was ordered and delivered quick and it was okay.
Drinks were delivered fast too.
I asked for the unlimited re-fill once and asked the waiter for another Coke. He walked up and down a few times before coming across and saying 'sorry but we're out of Coke, I can get you Fanta or something'. Priceless!!! On the tables they were advertising a coke topped with ice cream but they had no Coke. Useless
We've eaten there several times previously and had no bother but standards seem to be slipping. Me thinks The Harvester next time.
