We had decided on a takeaway as we had eaten out in another local restaurant the night before and chose this establishment to try their fish and chips. Mistake. We only shared one fish supper as we were not overly hungry, which is just as well as the chips were... More

Visited many times over the years and the pizzas and pasta were always very good. What has happened? My visit this time will be my last. The pasta was bland, the black pudding ended up in the bin and the only consolation was the chips which were OK. Oh, the diet coke was OK as well. Suggest the owners sit... More

I repeated my question and he said "We don't do gluten... More

Ordered pizza, chips and pasta, delivery was quick, food was awful. The greasiest pizza and chips i have ever seen, coudn't eat it. Pasta was ok a bit bland. Will never order from here again. What a complete waste of money and it's expensive for a box of grease.

the first I placed an order was for a pizza. It was warm and had to re heat it in the microwave. I took 2 hours to come. The 2nd time was for a pizza and chips. It came on time but the pizza was swimming in fat. Still no call back from the restaurant. They got my money so... More
