Visited the location with my husband as we had been given a groupon voucher as a gift. We spoke to the landlord Ian and made the booking a few weeks ago and he asked us for the groupon code in advance. I just assumed this was the norm so gave it to him. However When we arrived at the location... More

Don't bother with this terrible excuse for a restaurant. Tatty decor, unclean, rude service, terrible food. I would hate to see what state their kitchen is in & the person doing the cooking (can't call them a chef because they can't cook to save their life) should never be allowed in a kitchen. Maybe someone from Environmental Health should take... More

The worst food we have ever tasted and very over priced. Absolutely disgusting and the restaurant smells awful too. Never ever again will we even visit this awful place. Oh and our food wasn't even cooked properly.

We purchased Groupon vouchers and on 7th July I booked a table for 6.30pm for Saturday 16th July. We had previously eaten here and enjoyed the food. We arrived early at 6pm to have a drink beforehand, the barmaid obviously recognised us as her words were "have you come for food?". When we answered yes we were told there was... More

- First impressions, friendly staff and attentive. - Restaurant environment very poor quality. Carpet looked in dire need of replacement, wall paper slighted out dated, not keen on the table decor, it felt like we were eating in a living room. - Once seated, we waited 10 minutes to see a menu as there weren't enough to go around. -...

My husband and I visited this dreadful eatery this week and it is one of the worst places we have had the misfortune to eat at. Where do I start!!! The food took a long time to arrive, which we wouldn't have minded if it was worth the wait. My nut loaf arrived, which was cold with what the menu... More
