There was a nice welcome and when I said I was cold, I was shown some tables close to the fire. It was explained that I had to order at the bar. My latte arrived quite quickly. Couldn't wait to tuck into my roast. When it was brought to the table I had to ask for cutlery, and wasn't given... More

I brought my dad here for his birthday, and we weren't disappointed! He had the halloumi burger, and i had ch'ish and chips. We were both very impressed with the meal, and the portion size was brilliant. We also ordered a side of onion rings, but they weren't great. They'd been so deeply fried it was just a batter ring...

Been here a few times - in the summer they have live music and it's nice to sit outside overlooking the water - and in the winter it's quite cozy and atmospheric despite the sheer size of the place. Visited on a soggy November weekend after shopping in the area and fancied a bar snack and pint - and this... More

We had the rib eye and for £18 each was expecting it to be at least as good as beefeater but I'm afraid not tasted burnt and had far too much gristle, was picking at our teeth for ages because meat was a little tough too.

Visited with a group for a Christmas meal and disco. The service was ok, soup was vile, the roast Turkey looked a mess piled high, the salmon lasagne was so old and dried out it was all curled up. The dessert wasn't that bad, probably because it wasn't home-made! Disco was pathetic went home and was in bed by 10pm.... More

First visit. Nice table, good service taking drink and food orders. Food slow to arrive, had ordered tapas style platters plus salad. Put some items on my plate, picked up a piece of 'hand carved ham' to eat and the smell hit me before it even reached my mouth. The ham was off. Can not believe that the food hygiene... More
