Came here last Saturday for brunch with my husband and young daughter. Had heard great things and was keen to check it out. It was packed out and we were quoted an approx 25 mins wait but ended up waiting 35. Annoying but fair enough. I had the American and my husband had the full English. Both nice but nothing... More

Visited here on valentines morning for breakfast after being told by a friend it's great, and they weren't far wrong! I went for 'The american' breakfast which came with eggs, bacon, house fries, beans, toast and a pancake with maple syrup. I also got a sausage instead of the extra egg. Has to be one of the best breakfasts I've... More

Enjoyed a 3 egg omelette, and friends had eggs benny florentine and eggs benny royale, all of us agreed food was amazing. Floated home on all the free tea and... More

We called just before 2.30pm looking for some food and drinks. There were two of us. The place was busy and as we approached the lectern to ask for a table one of the staff members shouted that food stopped being served at 2.30pm. We were turned away.

This once enjoyable restaurant has hit new lows which mean we will never return I'm afraid. From our first visit 10 years ago, to the appalling breakfast experience we have just endured it has taken a steady, and quite extraordinary, journey downhill. Two cups of coffee offered before we had to ASK if we could order some food, started the... More
