Having ordered food and waited, it arrived in good time. Only problem being, cold chips on one of the three plates. Also dressed salad, asked for plain. However, when advised of this, waitress could do no more than offer to exchange food and get new...More

My grandma has the sausage and mash: gravy was cold, mash was lumpy and sausages were like leather. As a vegan, I did have the option of a curry (appreciated) but as I can't handle spice I went for a mix match of garlic ciabatta,...More
