Excellent food and great service. If hungry, try the mixed grill. I have seen smaller portions of meat in Texas!

Went for supper with friends. We all really enjoyed it. Had a little bit of a wait, but other than that really nice meals.

Visited this Restaurant based on reviews & was not disappointed. The Restaurant is well laid out and the staff friendly and helpful. On the day we visited it was very busy which resulted in a little delay in our meals arriving, but they were worth...the wait. The food was well cooked and well presented with good sized portions. Can recommend this venue.More

Came in here after looking at a promising menu. The first girl snappingly asked if we have booked a table no hello or welcome, then 5 minutes of waiting for them to find a table for 2 when there were 7 tables and around 30...seats. Ridiculously told that despite having 30 seats they did not have space for 2 for an hour. I’ll never be coming back, restaurant stank and was ugly anyway, spared me the pain of the stanky restaurant and bad attitude so thanksMore

Managed to get a table, when most other restaurants were booked. Had to wait but was worth it. The food was excellent and the staff offered great service. Can highly recommend. We actually booked another night later in the week.

First of all my food took 50 minutes to be made and then when it came it was cold and the meat was dryer than a nuns downstairs area. Furthermore when I confronted the manager about this she told me to buy another and that...I could not get it refunded. I then ordered a pint of Fosters as they had no good options so I made do but when i saw it being brought over I saw the waitress taking gulps out of it and say “sorry it’s just been a long day”. It was 1:10 for Christ sake the absolute rat den had only been open for one hour. Anyway when I went to get up and leave one of the staff (who was the same one that was taking gulps out of my pint) pointed out I hadn’t left a tip…More

Service was very slow,and poorest took 3 quarters of am hour from ordering to coming to table with no explanation as to why from the staff. After the main course went even offered the opportunity to order a sweet. Felt not wanted because we had...a toddler with us Would NEVER go backMore

Not sure, even though I only live 2miles away from the said establishment. Maybe check them out on/line or give them a call. Should think Pubs n Restaurants would welcome all the trade they can get, especially this time of... More
