Went to dinner there this evening and was very disappointed. Food quite good but timing of the courses and service very poor. Lots of very young staff who really don't care. Wouldn't recommend this place to friends.

A good night out although I have not been charged for parking in HB to eat out before. Very busy night but the restaurant allows walk ups to delay food service for those that booked. Look after your regulars guys.

The Speight's cider is a favourite for me, so that part of the meal was enjoyable! There were six of us and two had the ribs - one was happy enough, the other didn't care for the sauce. One had the lambs fry (liver) and...More
