Great value - the lights weren’t working but added to the ambience! We went for Father’s Day and didn’t realise dads are free. Bonus!

Food was excellent and a nice atmosphere, but the food took a lot longer than was advised...pretty much 2 times as long. There seemed to be no real reason for the delay either as since me and my party sat down the place started to empty out a little. Food was great and everyone was friendly. Just work on that delay time. You had 5 starving bodybuilders getting seriously hungry!

Rude staff, with no understanding of allergies. I was told because I was allergic to dairy I had to have the gluten free burger as apparently that covers everything.

I asked not to have this and asked for the burger I wanted, without the dairy eg. No cheese, different bun. They said that’s fine.

However when my order arrived it was the gluten free bun, gluten free burger stacked with 3 giant tomatoes and salad. Therefore not the burger I requested and without the sauce I requested (which I checked, was dairy free). The manager was rude and didn’t care one bit. I felt like a child being told by their parents I had to eat something. I only took one bite of the burger, and had to pay in full for it.

Overall staff are rude, obnoxious and don’t care about the service they give. I’d avoid at all costs as there are many nice places to eat in the area.

arrived to be told my booked table had been cancelled by me?? which it hadn't but fortunately we found a table, from arriving to getting food there was an hr wait which wasn't acceptable the food was a lovely as always but bad experience on this occasion this was rectified by them offering 20% off our bill which was good of them but we ended up paying an extra £5 on our car parking which didn't help!! we would visit again as we've had good experience in the past and the food is amazing hopefully our bad experience won't be repeated!!!

Food was excellent but OK priced, soft drinks expensive though - £4.00 for a lemonade?! Bit annoyed we were placed in a window table but not worth making fuss over. Enjoyable experience overall, didn't break the bank and would go back. But not to a window table.

The food is consistently excellent here. I can wholeheartedly recommend it on that basis. The only real issue we had this visit was that the service was pretty poor - we were seated quickly and our order taken and delivered, but then our waitress didn't return until we'd finished eating. Not usually something that would be a huge problem but since the bar doesn't serve you as a walk-up (only via table service) we were sat without drinks for a long time.

We had been let down by another bar and booked very last minute, the staff were very accommodating and helped us turn the day around. Very attentive and approachable staff - they couldn’t do enough to help us. Will definitely be going again!

The restaurant was very cold and the blender was broken so no milkshakes couldn't be made ( I understand this is out of the restaurants hands but could one not have been purchased for somewhere else)

Food and service was fantastic, would still defo return!

Great time and great food. The only thing was that we were on a high stool table and the air conditioning was blowing really strong cold air onto some of our group.

The food was amazing. Drinks service was slow, our table was infront of the bar and we could see our drinks sat on the bar top waiting to be brought over. We waited 15-20 mins for our drinks and we ordered them as soon as we sat down pretty much. Our food arrived as drinks arrived. Apart from that we all had amazing meals and the staff were friendly
