    Dining experience was lovely, we had booked a table which was all organised and ready, with crackers out for Christmas. Our waitress was wonderful and couldn't do enough for us, unfortunately I cant supply her name! I ordered the pizza with barbeque sauce which was very tasty but I must admit, it had too much barbeque sauce on for my taste, perhaps a bit less sauce and some other ingredients on the pizza would be nicer. We had garlic bread which was lovely. My partner had the spaghetti carbonara which he said was very nice but again, perhaps some more healthy ingredients added to the spaghetti would be good. My mum had the burger which she enjoyed and we had a side dish of chips, was lovely also. Overall, I would say the food is very nice but certainly missing that extra something which many other eateries now offer, certainly for me I would love to order something very full with other veg, plenty of onions, mushrooms etc. Unsure of your policy on side salad but again, I love to go to places with lots of side salad on offer, don't mind paying extra for it of course.

    Greeted by smiling staff. Drinks came quick but service was a little slow for ordering food. Looked like only 2 staff on serving tables and drinks. Ordered classic burgers and they came looking fresh and hot. Delicious meal. Slow service though for anything else. Nice to be left to chat with friends but a little more tentative would be nice.

    The staff were awesome but service was slow. We had to repeat our drinks order 3 times. The food when it came was hot and tasty. The restaurant was draughty.

    Very disappointing! On booking online we booked we booked for the '2 courses and a drink for £9.99 -which we were told did not exist when arriving at the restaurant. Gluten free food not included in any deal. Why? Nit a great experience - cold restaurant, unexciting, bland foof

    Service was good, meal was good with the exception we could not get sirloin steaks, which was a bit disappointing as this is the second time this has happened.
