Its a good place for a snack lunch - Baguettes/Pannini or Baked potato with range of fillings for just over a fiver. No draft beer - only cider or lager. Range of soft drinks is good. If you want posh then there are better places - but that is not a criticism just an observation. Clean and good value.

Lively little place for a night out. Good entertainment. Pleasant service. Danced the night away, people tend to arrive later.

We heard people commenting about the time it was taking for food, one tables food came and one of orders was wrong but the... More

Had a late night laugh here earlier in the year. Made the mistake of going back for lunch last week. Needs shutting down. All I can do is echo all of the disgusting food reviews this place has. Need an EHO serving on it and all the staff replacing.

Had the misfortune to opt for this place when we had come out of the cinema. Both my girls (5&8) opted for the ham, egg and chips. We ordered drinks which arrived (1 wrong) but after a few minutes I started to feel unwell (nothing eaten yet so not the food) I got up to speak to the assistant and... More

After we had visited here I read some of the other reviews which seemed to think this place was terrible. All I can say is.... We must have caught them on a good day. We were looking for somewhere for a quick snack in between museum visits and stopped here as it was about half-way to our next stop. There... More

Disgustingly dirty. Tables sticky and grubby. Appalling and disinterested staff. Toilet was filthy and broken..... Oh and outside!! Kitchen separated by a door to toilet so you can hear everything going on inside... Don't even ask!! Took 45 minutes to give us a coffee and a tea and then only because I asked for it. Blonde waitress was dismissive and... More

We unfortunately gave this place our trade. There was only one girl working in the front of house so service was slow and bad. The tables were sticky because they weren't cleaned properly, condiments were all pretty empty because there clearly was not enough organisation or professionalism to fill them up prior to opening. The choice of childrens drinks were... More
