Party of 11 fed up with chips and desperate for "a proper dinner" descended on The Arches and were very impressed. Good homely cooking, very reasonably priced, but this was not the best thing. A very big thanks to our excellent waitress who was so helpful, cheerful, efficient and couldn't do enough for us. Will certainly return.

Visited for Saturday lunch and ordered fish and chips. It was served fairly quickly and was very hot. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Would definitely visit again if we were in the area.

Great food, seemed very popular, really good value for money and excellent service. I walked past earlier in the evening and there were cues outside (always a good sign) so I returned a little later and got a table with ease.
