“Good burger; great chips !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Went for a catch up over dinner and chose here as my friend had been before and had really enjoyed it. Even though the place was mobbed we were seated immediately and did not have a long wait until our food! I opted for the chicken burger which was really good although the mozzarella was a bit bland. The sweet potato chips were amazing ! Something a bit different and really enjoyable. Staff also very pleasant and attentive. Would go back !

Friendly and helpful staff. Great choice. Great burgers. Fabulous wine deal! Don't listen to these other picky people about slow service...it is a great little place to relax and unwind!

“Service was a disaster, food was good.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

I could go into great detail but quite frankly the service was horrendous. Very slow, staff were not attentive at all and not well in tune with what was going on. We had to wait for 50 minutes for our food and when it arrived it was not what we ordered. A manager did apologise for how slow it was but he said it was because they were busy. However there were empty tables therefore they should be able to cope with a full restaurant, especially during a the festival. The food was good which is why they got 2stars but they really have to look at how they run this place.
