We've been here a few times, and every time the food is fantastic plenty of choice and the chef's can cook you something individually for you if you ask, the staff at friendly and helpful. I recommend this place for a visit 👍

Just left the place. Way overrated in my opinion. £15 for me and a 4 year old to eat, and all he had was ice cream! Drinks are expensive. Only highlight were the salt and pepper mushrooms. Doubt I'll go again.

Booked for a birthday meal last week and the service and food were brilliant as always. there were 12 of us in total, we booked in advance, were seated within minutes of arrival, staff were friendly and helpful, although it was very busy plates were cleared promptly and we were never in need of drinks. There is a wide choice... More

Always a great meal here. So much choose and a fantastic range of foods to try. It's great for fussy eaters as you can try anything and if you don't like it then you can move on to something else! Always plenty of seats so we're never waiting to sit.

Me and some friends went for lunch here on a Sunday at around 2pm, the food was cold and pretty much tasteless, a lot of the food had clearly been sat there for a long time, we also had to wait a while to be able to pay our bill due to staff standing around having a chat, all in... More

Me and Becky popped in for a spot of lunch. We got in as it opened so all of the food was fresh with a good variety available. The staff were friendly and polite. Everything was cleaned up as soon as it was empty. We ended up so full I got home a relaxed on the sofa. An awesome Saturday
