    The service here is outstanding - nothing is too much trouble. We had a party of 7 that included two children with additional needs - and they were able to adapt the menu so they got what they needed. The service is truly outstanding. We have rated in a number of places recently that were more expensive but the food and service here were so much better. Thank you all.

    Pizza was very bland even though the toppings should have given it plenty of flavour. My partners spicy gnocchi was missing the chorizo and they took £3 off a £45 bill when she'd eaten 4 pieces of gnocchi. Really poor food.

    Seven of us attended from mid 60s to 2 years old. It was for the enjoyable Bay Light Fest. The whole experience was great from the staff to the food and the whole ambience. Would strongly recommend the place.

    I ordered a gluten free pizza which, I certainly don’t think was gluten free unfortunately. It’s quite hard to trust eateries when you have allergies, I won’t be eating here again im afraid

    The food was cold and not worth the price we paid for the meals. Overpriced and not up to a good standard It was my son's birthday so was not going to complain. The staff were lovely. Where we were seated there was a leak in the roof and a bucket was underneath to catch the drops but I asked to be moved because it dropped on my clothes. Very disappointed

    At Christmas we enjoyed a lovely meal here so I booked it again. This time it was very different, extremely noisy and kids running riot. We waited half an hour for our drinks to come, the food took another hour. When it did come it was cold. Unfortunately we didn't have time to wait for a new meal to be cooked as we would've missed our bowling slots. The restaurant did give us a free lemonade but unfortunately I won't be recommending this to a friend

    Our family party of six adults and four children had lunch and afterwards bowled. The bowling experience was great but the dining was a little disappointing. We did wait for more than 50 minutes for our food after ordering. I accept that the kitchen was busy. The waiters were very pleasant and helpful so we were quite happy with the staff. However, the some of the food was rather poor. One of us ordered the Seabass dish. The fish was severely overcooked and very dry. A pasta dish arrived five minutes after all the rest of the order and was not very warm. The kebab dish was burned black and had to be replaced by an alternative. The beef burgers from the children's menu were rather dry. Two of us had Chicken burgers and these were fine. It was a shame as I have eaten previously here and the food was much better.

    Food was OK at best my chips were far too over cooked but I ate them as I didn't want to have to eat my meal alone. As it had happened to my husband on a previous visit the meal was replaced but everyone else had finished by the time the replacement came. We have eaten here a few times but the past couple of visits have really put me off coming back again

    Bleurgh. Chicken a la creme, awful. Pizza, dripping in oil, Peppercorn chicken, looked exactly like the chicken a la creme with peppercorns added to the sauce. I am not sure the mushrooms in the sauce were safe as they tasted sour and were inedible.

    Heard good things, but clearly misheard them. Arrived early for our table and were seated immediatly, thought this was off to a good start. Left at the table, nobody said they would come back for our order, after 5 minutes of waiting and servers passing us while the rest stood messing around on the bar, I ordered my own drinks from the bar and asked for a server to come take our food order. Drinks were brought to the table by the “bar manager” while a young lady was taking our food order, the “bar manager” reached under the server and slammed the drinks down, spilling a mouthful of my pint over the table, he didn’t say anything or even smile and immediatly went back to messing around at the end of the bar with other staff. Young lady finished taking our order, didn’t offer to wipe the table and left, so we used our own napkins to clean the spill. Food came out fast, a little too fast and the lasagne was bubbling in the dish, having worked in multiple kitchens and bars this immediatly prompted me to think it was microwaved. Server did not warn of the hot plates. Wishing one mouthful we were asked if the food was ok. The pasta was drowning in oil and Luke warm, kids running around near dinners, and still staff just stood around laughing with other, maybe one server was running around trying her best. Would never return here for food, massively overpriced for what you get and ruined what was an evening we had been looking forward too, in addition with a couple of hours of eating my partner was very unwell. Get staff that actually work and tend to customers who are paying for a service.

    Lovely food. Gf portions alot smaller than before, but compensated with fries. The service was fantastic as always and our server SOL (I believe was her name) was really accommodating. Only slight downfall is a couple of children literally running around the restaurant while we ate. We try and book late on to avoid this but not the restaurants fault.
