The staff are overly rude when asked if one of the children that were with us could have a child's portion of chicken balls as he is only 2 years old he couldn't possibly eat an adult portion we were told under no circumstances we would have to get an adult portion so roughly 10 chicken balls for a wee boy is ridiculous but we said ok and went ahead and ordered it anyways, they had no children's juice they then had the cheek to gives us all flat fizzy juice out of a bottle and charge over the price. 4 adults and 2 children we were just under £120 and that was only for main courses! They are dam right rude and we will not be back!!!! We had only went in as the last time we ordered to pick up it was going to be 90 minutes and then moaned because the husband went in 60 minutes later.

The last few times we have ordered the time estimate has been 45 minutes out ie a lengthy wait. The staff are unbelievably rude both on the phone and when you go in to collect. One woman made it abundantly clear her priority was to customers in the restaurant not take away in which case - don't offer a take away service. When you call up the staff are distracted and rude. Avoid - good food but not happy to be treated like an inconvenience

Food at lunch is excellent value.
increases greatly for Evening A la Carte .
Quality of cooking is superb and staff very attentive.
Could do with a new stair carpet.
Everything else great.

Had dinner here despite some poor reviews. Have to say the food is good but waaaaay overpriced. Service is bare minimum, menu is bafflingly long, in fact there's no point
listing everything wrong because I'd be here all day. a totally depressing dining experience however as I said before, the food is relatively good quality (although as in my case what is served may differ from what was ordered). If you still choose to eat here I'd suggest a take away and perhaps check your order before you leave to avoid disappointment.
