Was not very happy, I ordered Fish pie for lunch, and had a rather large burnt piece at the bottom, showed the waiter and they took it away not knowing what it was. Such a shame as I have had this on many occasions before. They deducted the cost of my black tea! I helped hubby with his food mixed grill which was huge!

Lovely staff and good the only thing the last 2 times we have been there is it’s very cold . We were told the first time the heating had broken down . But it was still cold and we asked to be moved away from the aircon but we still had to keep our coats on . I’m saying no to the next question only because it’s not very comfortable eating a meal with your coats on.

Disappointed with the venue, our first choice on the menu was not available, an extra portion of chicken did not arrive with the meal and turned up when half way through eating which was subsequently sent back. The pasta meal was not hot and had to be sent back. All in all not a very satisfactory experience.

I must say that our meals were of the highest quality, I had the sea bass, and my wife went for the spicy chicken and prawns, our compliments to the chef. The reason that I will not be awarding 5 stars is that, firstly the bar did not have any bitter beer, and secondly I was served my wine in a dirty glass, this was changed straight away.
