Eaten here many times over last couple of years. Staff are always friendly and smiley and busy. Unfortunately due to it being a large busy pub just not enough staff or something, as always waiting waiting waiting! No queueing system round the very large bar so people get served out of turn and always stood for a long time. Something... More

Ridiculous don't waste your time or money! No heating or hot food was provided and the timing wasn't good!

Visited for a family birthday meal. Restaurant's heating was broken (apparently has been since the start of January!) so it was uncomfortably cold, which got to you more the longer you were there. Only 2 staff behind the bar dealing with food orders and drinks, so a very long wait in the queue. Then told it would be 45 minutes... More
