    Restaurant area was very quiet (no atmosphere) - for a Friday night. Warned that there was 30min wait due to a large private party and no chicken breast… food was ‘Ok’ but Pork Loin a little over cooked. Not convinced that the Pie was homemade - Jerk chicken curry was good quality and refreshingly different to the norm. Sweets were a little ‘cool’. Drinks expensive - but aren’t they all - and attentive service. £120 for 4 seemed expensive (just 1 of 4 drinking), so just an ‘ok’ rating from us, sorry.

    The food was generally very good, staff very pleasant & helpful, my only improvement is the satay chicken was tender but lacked a satay sauce there was not much flavour on the chicken a dip to go with it would improve massively

    Booked for Valentine’s night but unfortunately it fell far below expectations of what was once a lovely venue. It seemed like chaos when we arrived, the staff didn’t know how to work the till, we were sat in a corner crammed between other guests almost as if we were sat on other guests’ laps. We asked to move and they did find us another table. We were asked if we’d like to order food within 30 seconds and had to persistently ask for drinks menus etc. The starters were lovely, however, that’s as far as it goes. Considering the food prices, the loin of cod I ordered was plain and tasteless, in a bowl of fish stock/broth with no real flavour. My partner had the Jamaican chicken burger but that was as poor, being flavourless (despite being coated in spices it seems) Dry, no sauce and the best part were the fries! Rather disappointed, we decided not to peruse the dessert menu and I wanted to pay. It took a good while before I had to approach the bar to request the bill. The staff ignored me, despite 4 of them being stood behind the bar and one making eye contact with me. I complained about the burger which was so poor my Partner did not eat. Fortunately the “manager” on duty did take this off the bill but all in all a disappointing experience. The staff clearly need better hospitality training which is not necessarily their fault and need some authoritative senior management in place. A shadow of its former self which is disappointing but I will not hurry to visit here again, sadly.

    Popped in for lunch on 13th Feb and had a lovely time. We had booked ahead for the restaurant. When we arrived the guy asked us where we would like to sit which was great as quite often eating out you dont get the choice. We had arancini and chicken skewers to start and they were really tasty. A classic burger and steak and ale pie to follow and i was too full but hubby had jam roly poly for desert which he said was great. All our food arrived piping hot with just the right gap between each course. The guy who greeted us also served us and was really helpful in answeiring questions on the menu. A great lunch with very good service. We will be back

    I had the cod which was cooked well but the rest of the meal was awful, it came with a watery buttery sauce that tuned the potatoes into a watery mush. No veg on the plate apart from a few cherry tomatoes. The restautant is very brightly lit which is a shame.

    Slow service but felt sorry for young lad - looks like a newby and was trying his hardest to please everyone. Someone in kitchen forgot to get my desert and I went without, when I queried it a waiter apologised and said I’d get it free of charge and they put it in a takeaway box (this was after a big arrogant flustered woman came out asking us whats the problem? She didn’t seem as friendly as the young man and the man who said I’d get it free so perhaps this flustered woman needs anger management lessons.) hope she’s not there when we revisit-will spoil our evening, if she is a manager - shame on her.

    Our table was in the bar,not the restaurant. A group of 6 young people who were very loud and using foul language spoilt any atmosphere. They went totally unchallenged by staff. Service and food were good but there was only one choice of steak on the menu.

    I had the roast beef dinner which was very disappointing, the beef had obviously been cut a while and reheated as it was curling up,very dry and chewy. The carrot, yes just one was impossible to get my knife through. Food was tepid warm

    Went for a lunch which we chose from the light bites menu. We both had three courses which were the perfect quantities for a mid day meal when you have stuff to do in the afternoon, rather than taking a nap. We will definitely be going again.

    Starter meal was heavily pre salted and spoiled the flavours, main course, my flatbread sharwarma was poor to say the least, approximately 5 small pieces of chicken about the size of a 5pence piece, the flatbread itself was hard,bone dry and difficult to cut even with a sharp knife...the fries were completely inedible, hard,dry and cold....the staff were helpful and apologetic and gave us a full refund..

    NYE dinner. Set menu but a good choice, my fillet steak main was perfectly cooked pink and was of the best quality. Service was attentive and all staff very friendly on what was a busy night for them. Couldn't see the entertainment from our table but they sounded good. Very Impressed. Complements to the management.

    Service whilst polite, was slow and could have been more attentive. On the whole, the food was good with decent portion sizes. Flavours were nice but dishes were not memorable and presentation could be improved. For a simple meal out on a cold evening, we can’t complain. The venue itself is well decorated, furnished and maintained, giving a good overall vibe. Nice to see that dogs are welcomed in the bar, definitely a nice spot for a drink and a bite to eat if you’re in the area.

    Very good meals from the Lunch Set Menu and the Main Menu. We ate in the bar which was not too busy when we were there. The Lunch Set Menu could be improved by providing a couple more main meals to choose from. Overall very good and I would recommend.
