As the title suggests we went for breakfast. The restaurant opened a few minutes late but wasn't an issue. Waiter friendly but went through the cooked breakfast options in a sort of military style Q&A session, whereby if he had listened instead of "grilling" (pardon the pun) he'd have got the order sooner. Breakfast toast/muffin/crumpet selection almost tucked away but... More

The food was very hot, and tasty. We had a party of 9 and our food arrived together, whereas sometimes when we have gone out together some have had to wait.

My meal was excellent with a BIG BUT. the Salad selection is good BUT you have stopped serving sultanas/raisins as a sprinkle. This was the only sprinkle I could have as I am wheat free. They add a lovely sweetness to a salad.

I love the food that is offered here. The staff are always friendly and always on hand to help. The salad bar is always fresh, the food always comes out hot. Service is fast. Nothing I'd complain about.

Arrived on time for our reserved table on a Sunday evening, but made to wait 15 minutes by a poorly organised host who had no idea where our party of 6 were going to sit. Drinks took ages to arrive despite comprising empty glasses for the self-serve machine, although food came within a reasonable period. The steaks were chewy, fatty... More
