Popped in for lunch after a hard morning shopping with the wife & grandchildren and the staff were very friendly and helpful the food was good and the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because I thought it a tad expensive

Service was very disorganised, pudding was brought out before some people had finished their mains. Food was nice, just nothing wow.

The supposed excellent beef stew was ridiculously salty! I barely ate it. Very disappointed. The waiter said they would bring a water with lemon and ice, it came without.......they just couldn't be bothered....Will not return.More

A really tasty meal, pleasant surroundings, but the meals are a tad expensive for what you get. There isn’t an awful lot of budget priced dishes for those eating out but watching their pennies. As long as you are prepared for how much it could...More

We use The Kitchen to meet friends for lunch, it's not fine dining but the food is well prepared and prices are reasonable. A good example of this type of restaurant
