Food was a bit disappointing. The chicken was literally just spatchcock chicken on a board. Chip portions were meagre.

We have dined here twice now in the past month - on both occasions we did the before 7pm menu - not that it was cheaper but because we were going to the cinema. Staffing - such a warm welcome really starts the meal -...More
