“Facilities and location great but food and service poor. Needs to improve if its to stay in business and compete with the likes ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

Ate hear with my family and were so disappointed. Parents ordered prawn and avacado and were presented with prawn cocktail - no avacado Iin sight. We had the mixed starter and discovered the chicken wings were burnt. They had run out of salmon so our order needed to be changed. The fish in the fish and chips was greasy so the majority went back uneaten. The chorizo boar burger appeared to be an ordinary burger with 3 slices of chorizo on top; so didnt live up to expectations.
The best part of the meal were the fries; and the drinks.

“Worst customer service in my life”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

I dined recently with some friends. The food wasn't great and the staff were pretty incompetant but worst of all was the chef - an aggressive looking thug who shouted and intimidated everyone within earshot when a complaint was made.

Not only will I never go back - I will make a point of warning anyone I can off this place. Do not take your children to this establishment. That man is a liability.

Shame because the park itself is lovely.

“This place is a joke.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

We took visiting family here on a Sunday afternoon for afternoon tea, we were told when we arrived that there was no cakes or scones as the delivery was the following day!!!! obviously none of the cooks had baking skills lol we then waited in excess of an hour for the last coffee to be served, I kept reminding the waiter as I noticed that he was serving people that had come in after us, and all he said was he was on his own!!! no apology whatsoever, frankly the place was an utter joke and we were mortally embarrassed!!! and had it been up to me I would have walked out without paying. I will never ever go there again.
