Service was appalling, waited half an hour for a pot of olives, a further hour and a half for two pizzas. My friend sat with an empty drink the entire meal, not once did the waiter ask us for a top up. Waiter was very disengaged with us never once asked us if the meals were okay. When the bill... More

Walked in here Friday, with a language barrier to be informed that the Card machine was not working " thank god I had cash upon me". Got seated and waited for drinks order. Drinks arrived after our "starters " . It just was so much a painful experience that I am going to end this trip review with a negative... More

Main course ordered the lamb, fifteen pounds for the smallest bit of lamb and a few potatoes and limo veg, sent that back it was all fat. My pizza was fine. Just a... More

Upstairs seating is great as tables are spaced enough to allow privacy but still lively enough to be entertained. Waiters very helpful and attentive. Food delicious! Would definitely recommend for adults of all ages.

Visited on 31st with three of my friends as hadn't been here for a few years. We were seated upstairs, there must've been a air vent above our table as it was a little chilly but nothing to complain about. The restaurant was very busy and had a lovely ambience to it. Our waiter came and took our drinks order... More

When I came here, I decided to go for the vegan options to see how they were as I knew they had a few of them. I had the garlic bread to start. It was quite dry and hard, although I don't think it was just because it was the vegan option, I think it's their style. The pizza was... More

We always seem to have a nice meal when we visit this restaurant. You can end up waiting a little bit too long for the food to come out but I guess they are normally quite busy so perhaps that's the reason. The food is nice enough and there's plenty of variety and we often share a pasta and pizza... More

Great building with lots of ambiance. Food and service good, although our make server could have been more knowledgable about the range of specialist beers on offer. Probably one of the better chains. Tip: upstairs is quieter than downstairs

Really conveniently placed in town, decent prices, decent food, decent server and management. Always good if you have a voucher as well, just a bonus. Range of foods to eat here, enough to please everyone. Nice in summer when you can sit outside.
