I use to come here with my daughter when it first opened many years ago. I recently visited again. The food is still good American style food. I came for the ribs which were very tasty.

They could only give the amount off with the voucher printed off, unlike other establishments that just use the code from the voucher... More

Back inn time has long been one of my favourite restaurants. I cannot fault the food, I've never once had a bad meal here! Yesterday I had the chilli to start which was lovely and the portion size was more than generous! My favourite thing about this place is the fact they have smaller dishes of the main meals served...

I visited this restaurant for a family birthday meal. Before I go to restaurants I usually look up the menu on the website so I can get a rough idea of the things I fancy.
