“Nice food, but...”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

Everything that I have had to eat there has been fine, and the same case goes for the friends that I have visited with!

However...

It is dirty, and it smells very strongly of sweat! A friend of mine brought her child along, and the play area is grubby and feels like it needs a good clean! Not nice at all!

The me is and the tables are sticky. The whole place in general just felt dirty. We went at about 5:30 in the afternoon, and it was full of drunk teenagers and children running around and screaming!

Good was nice, and drinks seemed cheap.. But felt as if I needed a shower as soon as I left.

“Poor quality food and dirty”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

The food here is not great quality and the whole place is grotty, the kids play area in particular, it all needs a good scrub so you don't stick to the tables and carpets

“Terrible, gone downhill”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The restaurant doors were all open presumably to clear the damp musky smell that seemed to come from the toilets, which were not clean and had one toilet roll between the ladies cubicles. The disabled toilet door was propped open. Tables sticky. Wasps and flies every where. Were served an uncooked part baked baguette and the rest of the food was underpar.we left before our desserts with a refund after a child in our party was stung and we couldn't sit anywhere away from the wasps. Very disappointed as have eaten there in the past but never will again.
