Food was good service was good
Wonderful food and very large portions. I would highly recommend
Pleasant surroundings. Friendly & attentive staff. Lovely food.
Mains were ok, Steak was very good but burger needed a little more seasoning and more sauce needed with the chicken. The doughnuts for desert were way over cooked and not sweet at all, the chocolate sauce was too bitter, these are left. had it not been a Groupon I would have not paid the full price. shame as I know people that highly recommend it.
Disappointing menu, very little actually on there thats memtioned in the ad. I had olives to start, floating in large quantity of oil. Fish and chips, very small fish portion, the batter was very pale. Chips were excellent. Side salad was only lettuce. Icecream was lovely. We would have liked coffee but no one asked us. Considering the place was mostly empty the service was very slow. Won't return
Not what I expected,The voucher stated we could order mains from the main menu up to £14.95 and starters or dessert up to £4.99_ we were told that the price of food had risen so much that we had to choose much cheaper items from the menu, We both chose dishes for £10.95 , as long as we forfeited the wine.
My starter salt beef with mustard pickle and home made bread & butter,was two small pieces of toast, smaller than the two pats of butter. my wifes mushroom dish consisted of one small mushroom with another the same size cut into small pieces & arranged round it with melted cheese sauce & herbs. although staff were very pleasant considering, there were only about eight other diners service was very slow. I feel that they did not live up to what they were advertising in the terms of the voucher.We will not be visiting there again.
Was this helpful?
Very limited menu now as I have known others that have been and selected from the main menu. Thought my salmon dish was very small. As we had starter and main course was going to pay for sweet but was told we could only have from the groupon choice of 2 and could not pay for a sweet from the main menu, seeing we were paying could not see the logic in this. Was so glad I had lunch.
The food was very good will be going back staff was very helpful and very friendly will go back again
