“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Visited on Bank Holiday Monday so the 15 wait was expected for a well-known chain in a big city. The waitress was nice but obviously rushed off her feet as she didn't stop at our table for more than 20 seconds and seemed distracted. The starters were poor, no presentation, no flavour, salad had no dressing. The main only got worst, the meatballs were inedible, the chips with 'cheese and bacon' came out as cold plastic cheese sauce and greasy lumps of fat. I could see my wrap sitting for 10 minutes on the pass before it got to the table. The waitress noticed that our food was barely touched but didn't ask if everything was okay and before we could tell her she was off with all the plates and didn't return.

“poor expected more because of location”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

staff were very friendly but food was poor. The chicken burger was just two small pieces of chicken and they certainly know how to charge.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

A group of eight of us stopped here for late lunch yesterday, having heard great reviews from others. We were asked to take a seat in the bar area to wait for our table. The bar area was really untidy and the floor was dirty. It seemed to be used as staff quarters with everything from packets of shop bought donuts to a coffee machine sitting on the counters alongside coats and cardigans. The toilets were clean but did smell!!
We were shown to our seats and again the floor was filthy underneath our booth, napkins, bits of food and generally sticky. The tables only seemed to be cleaned if they were needed, one table opposite us was left with dirty plates for our entire stay!
The food was okay, but expensive for what you get, I choose a crab salad and it fed me although they could go easy with the sweet chilli sauce. My dessert was delicious and my praline late was one of the best coffees iv ever tasted.
I certainly wont be in a hurry to return
