I hereby offer my sincere apologies for your atrocious experience on Saturday. It can only be described as a freak event. Staff have been severely dealt with and practices put in place to prevent it ever happening again.

So we found a chicken bone in our fish and chips. Apparently the staff had KFC for lunch and somehow their chewed bones landed up in our food. We were only offered for that meal to be removed from the bill. Disgusted!

The food is great, service is average and staff need to work on their attitude. They simple need to smile more and to look more interested!
