The service was very prompt and the staff friendly which is always a bonus when eating out with young children. We had time... More

I have re-visted Molly Browns since my 2015 visit, a visit where I awarded it 3 stars and described it as average plus, a review that "top shagger" Daley Carnduff didn't take to kindly and described Brambles reviews as my own personal joke section of the internet. Anyway when Daley (known for his late nights and flamboyant hairstyles) aint taking... More

Since they've added the "dinner and a movie" deal with Movieland this has become a far more common destination for me. The portions are excellent and its good value for money. Perfect for a cheap night out.

We booked, and were given a nice table in the main part of the restaurant. People who arrived at the same time as us but hadn't booked were given a table round the back so I'd recommend booking. They have a 2 courses for £11.95 offer and there is a good variety of starters and mains to chose from. The... More

Pleasant atmosphere, good beer, nice surroundings. Enjoyable experience. Out for a quiet drink with friends, was able to have a conversation without crazy music in the background.

A very tasty meal. They do an early bird menu, 2 courses, and the choices a avaliable are marked with a star. Some areas not... More

Hi Sam, Apologies for the late reply as I have been so busy over Christmas dealing with extremely happy customers and also the fact it took me a few times to read your review due to the amount of spelling mistakes and bad grammar. I can only apologise if your food was not as hot as you expected and I... More
