Disappointed with my starter which was a prawn cocktail. Wouldn't have paid the normal price for this as small and very few prawns and hardly any sauce. Rather tasteless

Went as a party food was not worth buying as you get a very small choice . Prawn cocktail all lettuce with maybe a thin coating of Marie sauce on top with very little prawns . Burger buns out of freezer and all soggy , most of the food we bought ended up in plastic bags and was taken home for dogs . Never go back need new chef .no organisation what so ever very very disappointed .

1.The lounge/eatery was full of hot fat smoke. When I asked if the extractor fans could be switched on I was told there weren't any. 2. The £8.45 meals (mostly burgers) didn't appeal to me. I was told I could not pay the difference between that and the higher priced meals which I did consider eating. 3. I settled on the cassoulet. It was awful. Neither the onions nor the sausages had been fried before being added to the sauce. Consequently the onion was hard instead of melting and the sausage skins were like rubber.

Fish batter was very thick, stodgy & uncooked. Even worse, on sending the food back only partly eaten, no one came to apologise, let alone offer any recompense.

Groupon meal disappointing and therefore would not recommend. We have another voucher we just hope our next visit is better than the last.

Inflexibility of using the voucher will prevent us getting another Groupon here. On previous visits we have always been allowed to order items over the groupon stated price and pay the difference. This was not possible on this visit and meant the menu was restrictive. Other friends have had the same problem and will not be going again. Surely it's better to have extra money going into the till than insist that people using the vouchers are only entitled to a small part of the menu. I appreciate it does say what you can redeem the voucher for on the voucher but there has always been flexibility in the past with this merchant We have always had flexibility at other restaurants / bars as well with choosing something more expensive and paying the difference.
