Waited nearly an hour to get served. Portions were very small and stingy. Used to be much better than this. Hopeless service at the bar for drinks. Looked very understaffed. Would not use again.

The food and drink is very good, good value for money however let's itself down by the lack of waiting area for under 18's.

Waited over an hour for food to arrive. When it turned up it was cold! Very loud environment in which tables are crammed to close together. Not really the best place for quiet family conversation.
