Me and my mother arrived here at about 25 to 11 knowing that breakfast was served until 11. No one was available to seat us so we went to the bar where we were told it would be a 'struggle' to fit us in for at least 15 minutes as it was 'so busy'. Excuse us if we are wrong... More

3 of us had fish and chips, large portions, all hot. Tartare sauce was very garlicky??? Staff friendly enough but bit sparse on the ground. O.k. for lunch time visit. Toilets very clean.

Visited Oswalds cross with my boyfriend for lunch. The food was not great. The only thing I was really impressed with was how the cucumber was sliced - lengths not in widths. The atmosphere was terrible. We were seated near a middle aged woman with her kids so we got to hear how terrible her life was while she sucked... More

Three of us went for an early meal last night, we were seated very fast, drinks arrived, but they brought only two, and we had to remind the waitress that we were one drink short. My husband ordered steak Dianne, and they said there were no skinny chips so he had to have the chunky chips instead, the steak was... More

If you're expecting a Michelin star type of meal you will be disappointed, if you're planning on a friendly atmosphere with basic but tasty food with good portions you will think it's spot on! We were greeted by a friendly front of house and waited no time at all to be seated taking in mind we didn't book we went... More

Service 101, since no one has taught these guys... If you don't have a booth, tell the customer outright, don't just take them off to a random part of the restaurant and say 'any of these tables is fine...' When you seat someone, tell the staff where they are, so a customer isn't dependent on the table next door wanting... More

Decided to go for an early tea & wasn't too disappointed. Waitress was very polite & accomodating to our requirements. There were are few things that weren't available on the menu & they didn't offer any alternatives but all in all we had a nice meal.
