    Amazing food, service and the waiter was super friendly! Only downside, I didn't get my caramelized onions with my pie :-)

    Very good meal and we all enjoyed it.
    Best dish was the Haddock. The puddings were excellent (we shared them).

    I have eaten at this restaurant for many, many years and my partner has a loyalty card. It has always been a favourite place to visit. This was so disappointing! I can only assume that everything good was changed also with the revamp. The cooking skills with the food was just novice and so bland, the restaurant was cold and even when told, it remained cold. We still have our loyalty card although I doubt we will be using it again. How things change. Not always for the better.
