The decor in the restaurant can do with a serious upgrade and I found it a bit dark inside. The owner was very accommodating in terms of one of our party being in a wheelchair. The food was good and the price suite the food. Service was good and the staff very friendly. Generally a good casual eat out venue.

Good food - I recommend the Steaks. I took my little boy there to feed the ducks - great place for adults and kids.

The restaurant could do with a good clean to start off with. My omelette was cold, and the service was rather hit-and-miss. Not expensive, so I guess you get what you pay for.

Have eaten here many a time, but have only ever had the full rack of ribs. Have sat inside and out, upstairs and down, and a good experience from any angle.

We went on a Monday around 12. It was very hot. It was great when they put on the mist sprayers which cooled off the area quickly. The newspapers are free for reading while you wait and sitting next to the water at Brightwater is nice. The drinks came relatively quickly but the breakfast took a long time, even though... More

After meeting the most friendly proprietor, Terence, I had no option but to take... More
