Description: We would like to make all our customers aware that from 1st January 2018, we will not be offering a food service. Our bar will remain open as usual. The reason for this is that FLAX will be taken over on 1st February 2018. The new owners will be operaing under the name of Jo Jo's.. We sincerly hope that they make a great success of their new business and genuinely offer our very best wishes. We would like to thank all our customers for their support over the past four and a half years and wish you all a happy and prosperous 2018. Thank you!!

Another great event at Flax. Monthly quiz night with a tasty home cooked meal half way through. Such good value and friendly table service, thanks to Danny. The owner Mark on hand with a smile and time for a chat between drinks and questions too.
You won't be disappointed with a visit to this or any of the events at Flax.

Thank you for taking the time to review our business. We're pleased that you enjoyed your meal and felt that it was also great value for money.

Regarding the 'worth the wait', I'm sorry if you did feel that we took a little longer than expected. We do target a 20 minute service time from order to bringing out your food. However this can sometimes be slightly longer for obvious reasons such as following a larger order or during busier times. we'll certainly take your comment on-board and look at how we can improve this.

We hope that you have the opportunity to use us again in the near future.

Many thanks again!
