    We had to wait 50 minutes for the main meal to be served; this was probably an oversight as only one guest had a starter. The food was very nice but not piping hot, warm at best. The waitress service was pleasant.

    The food was nice and the actual place was fine but the service was non existent!! We had to wait for our starters as the waitress had "split up" our order. We then had to go and find someone to ask for the dessert menu and again we had to get up and find a member of staff to ask for the bill. Good job we didn't want lots of drinks with our meal, as no one came over. I wouldn't mind if the place was really busy, you could understand having to wait but there was hardly anybody in. Then, when I went to pay, the waitress never asked if everything was OK and then was "slouched" on the bar, as if we were keeping her up, while my transaction went through! My family and I just came away with the impression that the staff couldn't be bothered and that our custom wasn't important.
    It was an anniversary/birthday meal and my family had travelled from Cheshire and Cumbria. I'd booked it, as I only live a few miles away but I felt disappointed and let down. I certainly won't be going back in a hurry or recommending it to any of my friends.

    All had prawn cocktail starter. Was really lovely main meals were steaks cooked as requested and chicken all lovely presented we like fish. And it would be good if you had more fish dishes available like salmon Dover sole or any grilled or poached fish as cannot eat battered fish but everything else was lovely thankyou

    The bar staff and young man Oliver who looked after us were excellent. Oliver was a real credit to the place. His attention to ensuring we had a lovely time was ideal.
    Shame however about the quality of the food presented from the kitchen with the exception of the scampi was poor. Mix grills , all meat was either tough or well over cooked . Children s meals looked liked they had been thrown on the plate and they even left the CHIPS . { what does that tell you , adults were the same }. Desserts well that chef needs to go back to school as he / she tried to serve the children BLACK BANANAS and I mean BLACK for the desserts , the exchange was no better , Ice Cream Sundee , was two scoops of ice cream and teddy bear wafer, There were three other desserts that were either over cooked in the re heating process with very little custard or poor in presentation. Missed a mention on the two starters but you have the idea by now, asked for a finger bowl and got COLD water !! .
    Conclusion ;- would visit again having the Scampi and might try one of the spit roasted chickens

    We dine here once a month and the food and service is usually very good. Yesterday with it being bank holiday the place was very, very busy so we had to wait quite a long time to be served. Meals were very good.
