Nice decor, clean and modern loos (always a bonus). Waitress was very helpful, but if it had been busy, she would have been overwhelmed, as there didn't seem to be a lot of staff on.
Food was quick in coming, hot and tasty, although the salad included could have been a bit more interesting. Pudding was good and the lunch time special price was very competitive. Would go again for lunch, good value for money.

I do wonder why this place is always busy as the food is not very good. Luke warm chips and chicken is dry. Chicken tastes like rubber (cheap breasts). Stella is expensive but a good pint.
calamari starter was tasteless. Deep fried and very greasy. I did complain and we got this off the final bill

We weren't greeted on entry so went to find ourselves a table before rudely being almost shouted at by bar staff to stop and wait whilst they tried to figure out where we could go.
We went and ordered at the bar as table service was non existent.
My meal came out first, and I'd finished it by the time everyone else's arrived.
We then all sat there for 45 minutes with clear plates, before again, going to the bar to order our deserts and to ask for our table to be cleared.
Someone began clearing our table, but then seemed to forget to do the rest. So once deserts arrived, the waiter turned to walk back to the kitchen - I had to ask him to turn around and take the rest of the plates!
Only recommended if you like microwave meals, doing everything yourself, and everything Luke-warm
