“Great eating place”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We visited here for mothers day. The service was great, the food choices were brilliant and the atmosphere was lovely. We all really enjoyed our food which arrived fairly quickly and was cooked perfectly. Could not fault this place in any way. Real value for our money.

“relaxed atmosphere comfortable seating good food”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

the food is good service can at times be a bit slow but probably due to attention to each customer. their chips and steak sandwiches with their own special sauce is really tastey. it can be a bit pricey but would visit again

“Ok for a lunch stop”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Had lunch here with a couple of friends.Menu is average all the usual items,but nothing original.
Opted for tuna sandwich which was below par as heavy on mayo but light on tuna.
If hungry and nearby would drop in again however would not go out my way to return.
staff pleasant and attentive.

“Nice place.”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

Went eith a small group of friends and two children. We did book ahead though as we heard it could get quite busy.
The food was fine. The others enjoyed their meal more than I did mine. The waitress was a bit ditzy forgetting small parts of the order. But fixed it fast enough when we mentioned it.

We were put up the very back (Which was handy as there was room for the kids. But if you were on a romantic meal out, the back is not where you want to be as it's next to the toilets and back door which was in use by staff quite a lot.
The staff were friendly enough. We had no hassles. To be fair we were there on valentines during late lunch so priorities would have been else where.

Id go back but not for their chicken burger.
