We attended the restaurant on Saturday 9th August and arrived around 5:30. We were shown the early bird menu, which offered a deal of a main course and dessert for £12.50. My son and I opted for the fish and chips - when it arrived it was the same portion size as my daughter's kids size fish and chips.
When I queried this with the waiter I was told that the early bird menu is discounted and that's why the portions are smaller! Sorry, just because I arrive early doesn't mean I am less hungry! I then asked him by that rationale, the fish and chips must have cost £4.50 as this was the cost of the kids's meal I would have been as well ordering. Therefore dessert must cost £8.00. He didn't respond and just walked off. Quality was good, but portion size ridiculous - won't be back.
