    Service was friendly but slow. Most of us were satisfied with our meals but my steak was so burned that thé bitterness ruined the entire flavour. It was medium-rare, as requested. But also burned to bitterness in places. I have no intention of going back.

    Can’t fault anything except the latte not being very hot

    The food was ok, not overly generous but let down by the dessert experience.

    Dined here on a Monday lunchtime and it was raining. The restaurant was quite empty (four tables occupied). There seemed to be just one server and it was quite slow. Food was very good when it did come though. Olives, Tempera King Prawns, Veggie burger and American burger. Would have preferred a little more salad with the veggie burger instead of chips.

    The food was very good and the waiter polite but service was very slow. We were in the restaurant for 1 hour before we started eating and with 2 small hungry children to divert this was disappointing

    Dissapointed as there were only two people to serve the whole restaurant, this was made worse by a booking of 25!!!! We had a long wait for drinks and starters. I have on a number of occasions visited this restaurant but given my latest experience I am somewhat undecided as to whether to visit again
