“How can commenters can be so so "English"....!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

Every establishment has its own things to sort & especially with the crisis....I've been coming to the century for a time or whenever am passing by for a lunch or dinner with my family & two kids.Actually like or not the place there is especially a man which is very outstanding polite & so respectful & I saw here takes care of everybody & especially elderly people & keeps the place as clean as he can while other member are not pulling there weight,which makes us all feel home!AND is is so nice from him opening the door for us & helping with my children,serving us & refilling us fresh water with lemon & lime-& much more,at the end no deserts for us but we were treated with a couple of fudges.We don't know we're he is BUT get him back!!!the food was/is awesome.The duck/Hawaiian pizza was a delight,that mint burger & especially the Greek salad & thank you to the chef & he's crew for a nice refreshing new menu!!!yes I might say that some female waiters are a little fake & lazy & the place does need some remodelling, the W.C. Needs to be reformed!!!The yard outside needs to be fixed properly!Me & my family will always come there cause at the bottom line is I like/enjoyed Being treated as a human then as a pound as the Methuen or somewhere else!!!
King regards:
Magda/Charlie

“Dirty cups and Bad food - Avoid at all cost”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

Hard to understand how someone can ruin such simple dishes like salad and Hawaian Pizza. Even harder to accept dirty tables and china. We have asked for a new tea cup to replace the one with lipstick smudges on the rim and received another one with a different lipstick colour.
This place should be closed for hygiene.

“Needs a damn good clean!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013 via mobile

We used to come here alot and always found it a safe bet! Good clean, child friendly etc. However we haven't visited for sometime, not for any particular reason, but on returning today we were disappointed with the cleanliness. To the point that if it wasn't raining we would have left. Child seats, sofas all very grotty and need replacing, sticky tables and food on the floor added to the general grubbiness. We stayed and ordered and apart from a slight delay our food arrived and it was fine. Somebody needs to sort out a deep clean - I will certainly think twice before returning.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

Staff seem friendly and the food is good but sadly the atmosphere and the length of time it takes to get food is a little too long dispite it not being that busy. I would say it is a little over priced for its location and the food itself.
