Food was fine unfortunately service was not great. Waiter looked like he’d rather be anywhere else and anything we asked him was a massive inconvenience!

Food was great but the service was really bad. We were in the secret room and twice where brought the wrong drinks. When the food arrived it took 15 minutes between the first plate and the last plate so most people had finished before all the food was delivered.

Table of 6. Booked for brunch. Attentive waiter who explained breakfast menu was finishing soon but they could squeeze us in if we wanted. I’ve visited a few times. I recommend steak n eggs. Although pancakes looked gorgeous and my veggie friend enjoyed her full breakfast. All in all a fun place for brunch. Family friendly

Service was pretty bad - food was sat under the heat lamp for over five minutes and it wasn’t busy.. I had to tell the waiter that our food had been sat there for a long time and he just said if it isn’t warm, we’ll make it again. Two chefs just stood there talking over the food..

Have been many times and usually it’s alright, but overall it was very bad and was only made better by having 30% off.

Table was booked for half 6, when served it took over 10 minutes each time a drink was ordered. We waited for over an hour for our mains and when enquired told it was another 15 minutes like we had been forgotten. Our main came at 8:05pm, one of our parties steak was stone cold and inedible, and due to delays over half the food was left as we had to leave so we could attend a show we were seeing at 8:30pm.

Visited last week on the eve of my birthday. The restaurant was busy, but severely understaffed. Young lad pretty much running the place and rushed off his feet. I really, really felt for him. We ordered starters and mains but had to leave before receiving the mains, as we'd already been in well over an hour waiting for nacho starters and other tables had walked who had waited even longer.
The server was really apologetic and would highly recommend him, but he was under too much pressure to man a large restaurant solely.
I absolutely wouldn't return.

Upon arrival we were told that there was no chicken. This eliminated 85% of the menu, still we stayed as I had been previously and had enjoyed my meal. I got the steak, which I was never asked how I would like it, it arrived pretty much still beating, I didn't want to say anything to the waitress as I have been in that role before and there is nothing worse than someone who whinge about their food. I ate the chips and replacement cheese fries as they had ran out of mac n cheese balls. My partner had the burger which looked amazing, I wish I had chosen that now. After the food we asked for the cheque, waited about 20 minutes and then had to ask for it again as the waitress seemed to have forgotten us. This refunded me of the KFC fiasco when they ran out of chicken, I was gutted as I had raved about the basket of chicken all day.

We were a bit early to our reservation, so we grabbed drinks at the bar. The service there was great and the cocktails were good! But, once we had gotten our table and tried to order, the kitchen was out of everything. Apparently, an order hadn't come in so over half of the menu was unavailable. We received our food and the nachos that were ordered didn't have all of the toppings that were listed on the menu. Overall, it wasn't terrible but I don't plan on returning.

Food was average. Really enjoyed the fries but the burgers were disappointing. Was happy it had discount as i don’t think it’s worth the full price. The drinks were good value for money. The service was fast and friendly and we wasn’t checked if everything was okay too often which was good. The restaurant was clean and quiet. Overall was an enjoyable evening.

Our trip was okay but a bit disappointing overall.

There were 6 of us, including 2 children. From the order, it took over half an hour to get the food. We could see it sitting under the lamps for a decent while. When it arrived, the has was cold.

We didn't say anything as we were in a rush, so adding more time wasn't an option.

The place is really well spoken of, so I will be back, it was just a bit of a letdown.

I went in for breakfast with my two small children and was really impressed with the quality of the food and the service. My daughter has a peanut allergy and when I informed the waitress she called the manager to the table who informed us in detail about the use of nuts in the kitchen and potential content of nuts in the ingredients. They also had children's cutlery on the table which was a nice touch. The only down side was that we had to wait quite a long time for our food. However, we will definitely come back.

It wasn’t very busy however took an extremely long time for drinks to be served after ordering, when drinks were brought they were wrong. Drinks then took extremely long again to be brought to the table. Gravy brought with food was cold and had to be sent back. Very poor service.

Food was amazing, and so filling. My partner ordered the Christmas pile up which was delicious and I had the Club California Burrito, which has a kick to it (hot sauce). The piggy chips were amazing with the bacon bacon mayo and the bacon rain. We’re definitely coming back to try some other things on the menu!

I’ve been to Home Sweet Home for breakfast before and really enjoyed it, so we decided to try there for an evening meal. There were 8 of us and when we arrived we were told we would be seated in the private dining area. We were happy with this as the room was behind a secret door and was quite exciting. The waiter took our drinks order and they were brought fairly quickly and the drinks were all nice, especially the cocktails. However it all went downhill from there. After making our order, the starters took quite a while to come, then the plates were sat in front of us for at least half an hour after we’d finished the course. We were booked in at half 7 and when it got to half past 9 we decided to go out the room and ask a waiter where our main meals were. Immediately after asking a few miraculously turned up, obvious they had been sat on the side and forgot about us. Half of us received our meals which were all stone cold. Not even edible, literally freezing cold. We waited for another waiter to turn up as the other half of our party didn’t have their meals, but it wasn’t for another 15 minutes until they actually arrived. At this point we’d all attempted to eat our cold meals as we were starving. By the time the other meals arrived we’d stopped eating. I advised the waiter about the horrendous food, to which she advised she would get the manager. The manager came, to who I explained about the complaints I had. Stone cold food, the time difference between to parties meals and also the ‘flat iron steak’ being brought blue rare (the waiter did not ask for a preference of how the lady in our party liked her steak cooked), and freezing cold. He tried to say everything had come fresh out the grill, which was blatantly not true. He went away advising he ‘would see what he could do’. Another hour went by, no plates has been moved and the manager did not return, I literally had to go out and find them! Not a good experience, which is a shame as we do like the place!

Food was really good, and the cocktails were lovely, only thing I could fault was the service, was told as we were seated that the food might take a little longer than normal as two big groups were in which was fine. But we ordered some drinks, and they took ages to arrive, and then as they arrived I asked for some tap water for the table and that just didn’t arrive at all during the entire meal. Other than the service the food was great

Took my daughter here after birthday cinema with friends. Easy to book. Little choice of drinks for 10yr olds. Ordered lemonade and were brought PINTS of it. Seriously? Nowhere to put our coats. Service was ok. But staff are young and not geared to children, sorry. Cakes are stupidly big and sickly and had to be taken home in boxes. Nothing healthy to write about. Wouldn’t go again if you paid me.
