    Awful. Food dry and tasteless. Staff not bothered. Not once did a member of staff ask how our food was it took 20mins for someone to take our order. It was busy but there was adequate staff working

    The food was very nice every one in our party even my two grandchildren enjoyed there food .the staff was most helpful and very nice and with all that was going on a round the area with the large fire in the car park across the road . People where coming in asking if they could get a meal as the place they had booked was closed due to the fire , they went over and above to help the people and managed to get the people a meal well done to all the staff.

    We had a lovely meal. The lady who greeted us was friendly and really helpful. My mum has mobility problems and we had a table that was ideally placed by the bathroom and the exit out to the arena. Staff were great and food was tasty.

    I had the slow roasted ribs in barbeque sauce. They were just falling off the bone, melt in the mouth, with a tangy barbeque sauce. The chips with it were very nice too. Service was excellent, quick, unfussy but very attentive.
