Just what we wanted! Having travelled 130 miles to an important bridge match (and won) we needed a nice dinner before going home and saw this at the side of the road. Car park, good service, good food, food came quickly, reasonable prices and choice. Having read some less flattering reviews I might point out that because it was early... More

Four of us went for a meal on 10th November after having Bluerare recommended to us and wasn't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic. Would definitely visit again if in that area

Found it in my heart to forgive them and rang up to order again today to be told I was... More

First time at this restaurant and I couldn't fault anything. I had 3 course meal which was great value and everything was cooked and presented perfectly. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. I would certainly return and recommend to others.

I eventually phoned at 8.25 asking for delivery time and was told it would be another 20-30 minutes and they apologised for the... More

The food here is lovely, find that if you eat in the quality is better rather than ordering it as a takeaway. Will be back
