Poor service. Poor food quality. Nothing as described from menu. A defensive owner did follow-up from a poor FB review, telephonically. But his promised resolution never materialized.

Enjoyed a tasty lunch. Restaurant not very full despite the quality of the food. Menu selection good. Although halaal, this caters for everybody (no alcohol served)

Limited parking is available, even during quiet times. There were 6 diners present but no staff were in the restaurant except for loud talking coming from the kitchen. We and another couple waited for about 3 minutes but when no one came to reception I went into the kitchen, where the staff were loudly chatting away. When they saw us there was no apology or sense of urgency. There seemed to be 2 waitrons who had a slovenly attitude and were untidily dressed in casual clothes. We were given seating options but the menus took a while to be brought to the table. The table surface was greasy and sticky and the tablemats did not match and one was damaged. My chair seat was loose and broken and I had to get a chair from another table which was not much better. We ordered our breakfast and only then did we discover that it was a halal venue as we were unable to order bacon. Not to everybody's preference and it should be advertised as such. The macon was dry and tough and the meal was reasonably satisfactory but nothing to recommend. In general the venue had an uncared for and dirty appearance with dust easily visible on the upper parts of the interior. The staff have no enthusiasm and just seem to go through the motions.

We waited for an hour for our food and literally ate for 10 mins after receiving it as the food was just so bad. Prior to receiving our food were told that the delivery truck is 5 mins away with the burger buns! Unprofessional. The food was bland and not worth the wait or money.

Avoid at all cost. Nothing on menu was available. The service is terrible. The food was not bad though portions are tiny.
Definitely not returning
