Visited with my husband for a birthday lunch, only to be greeted with dirty tables, unstocked condiments and miserable staff ( in particular the waitress ). Only two staff members front of house at lunchtime who sadly were unable to tell who was next to be served as ignorant individuals cheated the que. Average cold food with poor service!

Been here more times than I can remember. Always under staffed and during peak time can wait incredibly long at the bar.. Food is ok and decent price. Coffee is good value. Breakfast good too.

Ordered steaks medium to well. Came back pink and bleeding. I ate mine but wife waited. When asked how her meal was. She showed the plate and said couldn't eat it. Waitress said sorry and that was it. She carried on serving meals. Rubbish food rubbish service. Michael serving was polite.

12 of us ate here today for a Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday. It was faultless from starters to desserts. Despite the very large order all the meals arrived within less than minute per course from starters to main. All the meals were tasty & warm (or cold as per dish for desserts). Service was polite & helpful. You... More

Went here on New Years day evening. Every time we went to the bar it was a quarter of an hour wait - we'd have had food there if the service was better, surely it cant be that difficult to find staff.

I hate the no que policy at these places. Stood waiting for ages to be served and everyone just jumped in and people really got irate. Food was slow in coming and small portions. Not a great experience all round and lots of dirty tables. No one seems to care!

Absolutely terrible food, there was a table of six eating and plastic was found in rice. Raw mushroom served with mixed grill. Starters and main meal served together so main was cold when ate. Standards have slipped and food was not nice and manager was not helpful at all and did not seem bothered that we were not happy with... More

Very good food but service was a bit slow. A lot of choice on the menu and they even do theme nights for you to choose from.

Thank Jenna D
