Visited on Easter Monday with a friend while over on my holidays. Early evening menu was brilliant quality and value. Couldn't fault the staff. Made to feel very welcome and comfortable. Service was also quick. Surrounding modern, clean and calming. Can't wait to go back.👍

We stopped here for lunch on our way home from holiday. The restaurant was busy with locals but the lovely lady found us a seat. She gave the impression of keeping 'a very tight ship' but was really nice and had our order and food to us in no time at all. The food was delicious......after lovely soup, I had... More

Had a lovely lunch here yesterday and I really don't think I can rate the service highly enough to do it justice! The waitress was wonderful - I'm only sorry she finished her shift before I got a chance to ask her name & thank her personally. She spotted my disabled friend needed a bit more space and cleared away... More

The food served was not genuine. It was more like bland stewing steak which was probably bought on short notice from Tesco where we saw the Chef go to in their white uniform. Hardly hygienic and no one could finish the meal. We were then ignored by the manageress when we asked for the bill and had to leave the... More

Stopped off for a coffee last Saturday and decided to try some of their home baking. I had the best cheese scone ever! My wife had a treacle scone and thought it was very good too. Only criticism is that the butter kept chilled and is too hard to spread on the soft scone. We will be back again soon.

I've visited Quinn's numerous times but I feel that lately it is quite overpriced for food that is simply 'OK'. The staff are pleasant enough but do what they have to do without chitchat, except for Matthew who has always been great. Definitely not my first choice for dinner.

From the warm welcome when we arrived to the moment we left, Quins impressed. We enjoyed good food and excellent service and it was clear that many of our fellow diners were local regulars- usually a good sign!
