Breakfast treat with the family. Couldn't fault it for service, food & value. Made to feel very well looked after, nothing too much trouble to make your visit more enjoyable. Thank you.

The seating was dirty. The service was slow. I had booked the £12.99 for 2 courses set menu, but was just given the normal menus and had to ask for the set menu, although the first waiter didn’t understand what I was saying and had to call over a waitress. The waiter seemed slightly put out whenever we asked for anying such as cutlery! It was very busy in there and maybe they just didn’t have enough staff to cope? The food was ok, nothing special mind. The risotto was made using white rice and not risotto rice so a completely different texture to what you’d expect when you order risotto.

Very disappointed with service. 20 minutes wait to order a drink and although the waiting staff tried hard, there was insufficient of them.

Waitress tried to overcharge me for a extra beer. When i questioned it she didn't apologise just reissued the bill. This is quite common when dining on a company credit card. Also she kept touching my arm and shoulder which was most annoying.
