    The food was great with a good range for all. We tried the veggie burgers and they didn't disappoint, being probably one of the best we have had. If there was one drawback it was that the portions were very large and maybe smaller options could be offered. Didn't catch the name of our waiter but if I say he was fab(and quirky)I'm sure he'll recognise himself - our every need was catered for - well worth another visit.

    We booked for the Saturday night, staff couldn’t do enough for us , very pleasant and friendly. We had booked a table for four we all had starters and main course.
    Food was very tasteful and plenty of it.
    We enjoyed so much that we went back on the Sunday evening.

    Myself and my partner have been a few times now whether we booked ahead or turn up on the day looking for a table the staff are always accomadting. My partner can't rate the fajats enough and my steak is always tasty. We prefer to be sat in a booth as there is more room but tables on the floor are just as good.

    Cold fries and the steak on the sandwich would have been better sliced before serving

  • ((*** 12 June 2018 by Kyle from Liverpool

    Waited 20 minutes for someone to take our order.
    Waited another 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive.
    Food was average
    Wasn't asked if we required any more drinks, nor was we asked if we wanted a dessert.
    Considering this was meant to be our birthday meal our (which they knew about) we was left very very dissatisfied
