Tried her after recommendation food was great and the staff were very helpful, a little background music from the group. The wine special is £9.95 a bottle great value. The only problem is that you can’t book a table been a few times and always get served but it’s a chance you take.

Had lunch here with a few friends, a very typical basic bar food menu nothing to write home about but cooked well and tasted fine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It’s not trying to be a fine restaurant, you get what you pay for.

Visited the Magnet on Saturday evening around 6pm and it was extremely busy. Was asked at the bar if we would like to eat downstairs or wait for a table upstairs. We opted to wait and was told 10 to 15 mins as they were very busy. We were taken upstairs by a lovely fella who apologized for the delay. Our order was taken and we were told it would take about 10 minutes for the starters to arrive, no problem as I like to be told if theres a delay. Starters arrived and the mains arrived not too long after we were finished our starters. The food was excellent and I have to say the staff here were absolutely fantastic, long time since I have come across such professional and friendly staff, they were just so nice, every one of them. We paid the bill and again the delay was explained to us.Will visit here again for such. Great value menu. Food so tasty.

Been here several times and never disappoints, food to to die for, friendly staff and generous portions with great prices. The chicken stack is my favourite, highly recommend. Well worth driving 20 minutes to get there

Hi Liam d. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoy our food and prices. That is what we are aiming for here at The Magnet. It also gives us great pleasure to hear that you are driving in from outside the area for our cuisine. I will pass your words onto the staff. I must agree also that our chicken stack dish is very nice. One of our big sellers. See you again soon. Ronan
