When problems with the food are mentioned and the answer is "Put it on trip advisor" well...doesnt leave much left to say really. Won't be going back.

Visited today with family of 11. Good service and food and value for money. Liked the fact there is a separate drinking area if you dont want to eat. Would definitely go back.
