    Not as good as previous visits. I had not been for about 3months. One of our party had fish and chips and she was disappointed with the fish - did not think it was either cod or haddock and she thought it had a strange taste. Another had a fillet of fish on a bed of mashed pots - the mash looked solid and very unappetising and she did not eat it and said the fish was tasteless, even though the meal cost her £13. Coffee Late was a very small glass which was just over half full !

    We found the restaurant very welcoming and busy. It had been redecorated since our last visit. The offer deal of 2courses for £10.99, which I signed up for during the booking session, was exceptional value, as the salad bar served as a starter. In effect we had three courses for that price. Our server worked very hard and was quick and efficient. Will definitely come again. Thank you!

    Satisfactory. Had to stand and wait with my disabled mother at reception for a long time before being seated. Food was o.k, usually a favourite venue for my mother but food is becoming far too fancy, an option of plain mashes potato would be a plus. Some staff very nice.

    I love the new look of the restaurant, the food is tasty and service is always great here too, will definitely return.
    But as no one is ever perfect and there is always room for improvement...
    1, the app wouldn't let me book and I couldn't get through on the phone to book.
    2, there was no cucumber or butter out (6pm booking and wasn't too busy).
    3, this might sound like an odd complaint (but its not really a complaint just a suggestion) ...we don't normally order pudding but decided to save room and have a treat...well we nearly passed out when the biggest portions ever of chocolate fudge cake was very tasty but seriously it was enough for 3 people. Maybe this should be explained by the waitress on ordering as we would have shared one portion rather than be wasteful and embarrassed at not finishing. I seriously don't think that one person would ever be able to eat that much cake especially after a meal inc. the yummy salad bar to start. A table next to us had ordered desert too the velvet cake too, this also was a massive slab!
    Many thanks
