Hi Andrew, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Great to hear most aspects of your visit were great. We did politely ask the parents of said children to ensure they are seated but this is often difficult to police fully ourselves. This...More

Hi lilyy21 - thanks for the review and kind words. We only open at 12 noon and sometimes don't get busy straight away but all our chicken dishes are cooked "low and slow" and so do take slightly longer than other dishes. That said, all...More
