Such a wonderfully delightful place, good meal sizes and friendly staff. The decor was a great talking piece for all. Nice to see a restaurant providing large meals and good quality at the same time. Stop reading and just go!

Been eating at this establishment for over 30 years, unfortunately last nights experience was not good. Over an hour wait for food and incorrect on more than one count when finally arrived. Since when does a ‘skinny Minnie’ have fried onions on top of the burger?. Seems the chefs don’t know how or what the menu represents with regard to content and presentation.

Waitress/manageress very apologetic and didn’t charge for 2 of the meals. Clearly under staffed and lack of suitably trained personnel as we were not the only patrons affected.

This place use to be the best for American style food. Unfortunately a lot needs to be done both food wise and atmosphere wise to return it to its heyday which is a real shame as we are all for supporting local business.

Get your teams act together ‘Ollie’

Went for a family meal 1st time since lockdown was lifted.awful service mains came out before starters, dirty food on high chair before my child went in there. Starters eventually came out after waiting an hour then missed baby food to cone out. Waited another hour to have bigger tables then us have their food before ours. One unhappy child who didn't have their food. Disgusting service we tried to get the blame for tickets being in wrong order or having our mains brought out before our starters. Was still made to pay for warm starters and drinks. Will not be returning!!!

Awful service from start to finish.
Starters served but one missing , didn't arrive until others had finished. Then waitress started clearing our plates while the late starter was still being eaten. Think everyone knows to wait until the whole table is finished before clearing it.
Then same happened with mains, 1 missing took ages to arrive after others had eaten most of theirs.
Didn't even provide us with more cutlery, sauce that was requested not given.
Absolutely terrible , really gone downhill
