Visited this site with 3 other family members, approx 6pm, ordered drinks , sat down then ordered food, starters and mains all good at this point, hour later starters arrived which can only be described as utter rubbish, the mushrooms were cold and thrown onto plate, soup over spilling dish but to give a customer lettuce unfit for human consumption!!! Complained to over worked waitress she was very apologetic, manager was hiding!! Waited another 45 mins for mains - did not wait any longer paid for drinks and complained to assistant, will never return still waiting for call of them .

Evening ruined last night, never enough staff behind the bar, took 20 minutes to place food order, was told 35 minute wait but it was an hour and then when food came part of one meal was missing so had to find someone to report it to. Won’t be going again

My wife and I visited on a Monday morning to try their breakfast. I opted for the sizzling breakfast which, at £4.99, was great value for money - it was huge and very tasty. Lord knows how big the ultimate breakfast is!!! Served on a skillet it was kept very warm and I would definitely have one again. My wife went for the bacon and egg breakfast bun which was served on a brioche bun. She said it was very tasty. There are free refills on the tea and filter coffee which adds to the value for money.
The place itself was very clean and the staff friendly and polite.
We will definitely go back for breakfast.
