It would seem we were given a special 'Groupon' menu. Although some main courses were priced at over £18, no vegetables were included......all had to be purchased as additional items. 'Fresh' vegetables were carrots and frozen beans. When the bill came, it showed what the 'normal' price would have been and a service charge of 10% based on this price was automatically added. All in all a rather disappointing experience.

The starter of crab & spring onion fish cakes looked lovely but were heavy, stodgy, flavourless. In there defense they offered an alternative. We had cheese garlic bread which was lovely. Main of fish kebab then arrived again looked great, unfortunately monk fish wasn't cooked, ate the prawns and salmon but didn't enjoy chips we're amazing though. However I then spent the night in the bathroom. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. I was so disappointed as it was a bday present for my mum.

The staff should be a little less sharp towards the customers. Very off putting.

Been before and really enjoyed the food. This time it was dire, from the galic bread that was like a burnt crisp to the driest sea bass I have ever eaten, undercooked risotto and overcooked scallops. Will not be returning again.

Not as good as experience as its sister restuarant the Palm Tree, Our waiter was not quite with it.He brought the soup up minus a spoon and we had to ask him twice for one. He also tried to clear the plates away while one of us was still eating. I sent him away with a sharp word. That was the only two complaints on an otherwise pleasant evening.
