    Booked for 19.00, arrived on time and was showed to our table by a very pleasant waitress.

    The lovely gent seated us at the table real friendly.
    I never got the starter I ordered, but the one they gave me was lovely. As I didn't want to wait for another I never said anything.
    There was four of us, 3 meals came out. Mine was missing, it took 10 minutes for my to come. I felt extremely awkward at the table. We had to constantly ask for drinks and paying the bill took forever. Luckily another waitress jumped on board and sorted us out!!
    However mollie the table waitress apologised and 20% was taken off the bill. Mistakes happen it just seemed to be on both my courses.
    But.....staff very friendly, I would go there again just not soon as I would of liked.

    Very impressed. Facilities were clean and welcoming and staff excellent.
    My sister & I tried the sweet chilli chicken sharing platter - so much food & delicious. My son loved the sausages.
    Our waitress was excellent, friendly and very helpful.
    Outside area is lovely (ignoring the traffic noise) and children's play area in very good safe condition
