“Shocking, the worst food I have ever been served”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

We ate here on a Saturday tea time using a groupon voucher, we have had drinks in here before so had a fair idea of what to expect from the place, however, the restaurant area was a little room at the back which was cold and not quite basic.

I ordered the chicken satay for starters and what arrived was three tiny sticks of cement with quite a nice satay sauce. I can't express how disgusting the chicken was, it wasn't just dried out but was brick hard, it must have been days old. My husband had the meatballs which were nice enough but quite cold. For mains, I had the steak baguette, it was nice enough except the supposed caramelised onions were raw, no big deal but why say it comes with them if it doesn't, it was also luke warm. My husband had the mixed grill which was okay, luke warm again and he said the steak was tasteless, there was no seasoning. There also wasn't any grilled tomatoes or anything it was very pathetic looking.

Desert was quite nice, we had sticky toffee pudding and bread and butter pudding, again luke warm but tasty.

I should mention that there was only one other table eating at the time we were, so there was no need for the pathetic disgusting food.

Don't waste your money, eat anywhere else, it's cold and noisy.

“Confused identity”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

Not quite clear if its a pub that does ok food or bistro with Alcohol. ( can't moan to much as we had a group on voucher) but would have been annoyed if I paid full price.
Very understaffed so didn't get a warm welcome and sat right next to the bar with sky sports on ( not a Friday night meal out feeling) food Average weatherspoons!
