A good value Sunday lunch with a choice of 3 meats. You can help yourself to vegetables.
I'm gluten intolerant and they do a good gluten Free gravy but we booked beforehand to make sure they had some.

We ate early (1800) so the atmosphere was nonexistent. I had cod & chips which was alright without being in any way exceptional. My companion had a burger which thought was 'alright'.

We arrived early for our booked, expected to have to wait, but we were seated straight away, no problems. Not the cheapest meals, but reasonably priced for what it was, we had steak for £20. Service was excellent, nice atmosphere.

Used to go to Freya's restaurant years ago but the menu has shrunk dramatically and the quality of food is just ok. This is unfortunate because we use to love going to this restaurant back in their hay day.

Food wasn't nice, I had steak and it was more fat than meat, chips were nice! Waited 20 minuites for a drink and when asking 2 different waitresses where it was and just getting nothing from them the 3rd went and got it. This was a 30th birthday meal and service & food were both terrible and we weren't the only unhappy ones there.... avoid!

Didn't realise it was in a casino, probably not have booked if I had. Most restaurants don't serve fish and chips! and unfortunately the smell of these was overpowering as we entered.

Overall the food and atmosphere was good the only thing that let it down was that we had ordered drinks part way through out main meal. By the time we had finished our meal and were ready to pay (15mins approx) we still had not received our drinks. We went to pay and the host had charged us for the drinks, upon realising this after we had explained he was very helpful and apologetic. This was the only thing that let it down really, although all 4 of us had agreed the coke was very flat and (cheap) so could maybe invest in better drinks?

Overall this was good food. We were dining on the restaurant week offer though and the food provided was not sax per menu. E.g., the menu said we would get a side of fries or veg, but we were told we could not have veg. The menu said steak, but it was a half portion of steak. We asked for seperate portions of twice cooked chips, were told there were none, but then others were allowed to order. The food was nice, but these things did let it down. Also the lager served was flat and not pleasant. This was raised either server, but nothing done about it.

The food was excellent - each course was enough to satisfy, without being too much or leaving you wanting more. The atmosphere was a bit subdued, but to be fair, that was likely due to the very short time (just two days) before Christmas! The information on Open Table needs to be updated to match the actual opening times. My initial booking was accepted for the time when Freya's closed, and although the staff were aware of this problem when I rang and very accommodating with regard to moving the booking time, it could have caused problems. However, overall the staff were fantastic and Freya's is to be commended for a delicious and good-value meal.
