Big improvements here. The Steak lunch was delicious and very tender. Long queue indicates it's popularity.

The food is not hot... More

Went here with family on the bank holiday Sunday. Staff were very friendly & efficient. Very quick service. Had the Moroccan beef which was delicious. Nice portion size, but priced accordingly. Very baby friendly, no problem getting a high chair.
