    We visited for my wife's birthday (a fact that I mentioned when booking, though there was no evidence that any account had been taken of that). The food was, nevertheless, enjoyable, and the main course portions were huge, though a little more variety in the menu would have helped. The staff were quite friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. The restaurant itself was modern and very pleasant, and while the background music was not entirely to our taste, it was at a low volume, and did not in any way impair our enjoyment of the meal. As far as the location is concerned, the venue is conveniently adjacent to a large car park. The barriers were, however, out of order, so the car park was unusable (the 4-star location marking is because of that, and so is hopefully a one-off), and I had to park several hundred yards away in the Elizabeth Terminal car park (which was, at least, free, as it was after 5pm).

    arrived at the bar, went to our table waited about 20 mins to order our food then it took 25 mins to cook garlic bread, and when it arrived it was the wrong thing it had cheese on when we ordered normal garlic bread,

    then when we finished our starters it took over 35 mins for our main course to arrive, food was nice when it arrived, after we eaten we wanted to pay the bill and a young lad was at the till when we arrived at the til to ask for our bill, when we got there and asked for the bill he just walked off in a huff in a really bad attitude, i and my girl friend was no impress no our experance

    8 different choices, but, not a great selection in the summer seafood collection, only one choice. We were not offered the summer menu had to ask as it is on the website.
    Food was delivered all together and the mains were all perfectly cooked and presented.

    Excellent service from very friendly staff. We had several dishes from the large selection on the menu scampi, chicken piri piri, chilli nachos and the club sandwich. Everything was presented beautifully and was very tasty with god portion size. We all would recommend and will go again.
