    Ate at 5 ish mid week. Very clean and service spot on. Could image the staff are skilled enough to make all diners feel welcome from individuals to kids groups. Food good but avoid the french fries, overcooked and hard. Value for money, 7/10

    Food was great. There were one or two items missing of the menu. The waiter exolained that the food had to come from specific franchises and with the bad weather some stuff had not got through. We got an explanation, alternatives and a smile Good pleasant staff. We will definitely use it again
