Previously this restaurant was exclusively a fast food takeaway, following a recent makeover it is a more if a restaurant feel to it with a fully licensed bar, nice alternative to what else is on offer in the local area

I'm a local and can safely say I've eaten in here for the last time this evening. There is always something wrong with my order. I should have known not to bother! I ordered a fillet burger and it arrived on a brown bap toasted within an inch of its life with sauce only on one side. I wasn't informed... More

Ate here recently as I was hungry and couldn't find anywhere else open. Was a bit fearful after reading some previous reviews. Food was fine, I had a salad and one of my family had pizza. Both were ok but staff were very young, untrained and inexperienced - earl grey tea is not decaf tea. Restaurant was busy but we... More
