Friend's chicken came with very little sauce compared to others in group. When we asked the waitress for more, we were told we had to pay an extra £2;50! We did so and decided to leave without dessert or buying anymore drinks. Will not be using again.

Terrible experience here! The staff were rude and unhelpful and got our order wrong, despite my husband correcting her when ordering. (They also made mistakes on the order of our friends on the table next to us). She basically thrust the wrong food at us on the table saying that's what had gone through on the order. When the table... More

Awful manager, very poor customer service skills. The bar and waiting staff are miserable and just can't be bothered with people. After I complained to the manager about the poor service and attitude of the staff and himself he sneered and walked away. Minutes later he sent along his bar manager with a refund who said - leave you're not... More

Food looked great but we didn't get to eat there as dogs aren't allowed in the beer garden which I find a bit strange, not expecting them to be in the restaurant, but usually they can stay outside. Was told that they can go to the bottom of the terrace but they couldn't put a table there for me, shame... More

Busy upon arrival. Patrons disrespectful with one family allowing their child to throw food all over the floor which was then not cleared up by the staff so we struggled to find tables that had been cleared or that did not edible debris all around them. 40 minute wait for parmos. Good however is good and we enjoyed the food.... More

Service was slow, staff looked miserable, food took over a hour, food was rubbish. The only good thing was the garden. Everything else was a disappointment. It's the first and last time I'll go to this place.
