Called here after my daughters recommendation. Driven past loads of timeout never called in until today. Got to say loved it. The manager was polite and professional and immediately showed us to our seats. Service was prompt yet polite. When the food arrived I was not disappointed. In all a great visit. The acid test - would I go back?... More

Never been treated so poorly by restaurant staff and management. Not interested in trying to resolve any issues or concerns you have. Instead they lie and continue to lie. Customer is never right! A simple sorry would of been all it took but that didn't seem to happen on this particular night. Its a shame because the food was lovely.... More

Hi, after speaking to all staff & other diners near your table then speaking to you about this more than once it saddens me to say to you again that shouting & using bad language at any staff will not be tolerated at any time. More

Ate from the 3 course menu. I had pate which was ok, my husband had mushrooms, again. Ok. The main of chicken in creamy mushroom sauce was average, husbands risotto was boiled rice, I am not the best cook in the world but I could knock spots of the below average food

Hi, I'm sorry we failed to impress you with our 3courses for £13.95, it is a very popular offer. We do not use boiled rice in the risotto just to reassure you but if there is ever any problem with your meal just let us know when we check back & ask if everything's ok. We do this check back...

Me, my boyfriend and his parents came here last night for a meal. As soon as you walk in it's an amazing atmosphere, always buzzing and busy. I had a steak which was cooked to perfection with sweet potato fries, all of our meals were delicious and for the price we payed we cannot complain at all. The staff were... More

Went last night with my little lad and the mother. Food is always good and the staff are great. Lad loves it there but better atmosphere if you go upstairs.
