I ordered pate as my starter which was soooo OFF it was disgusting., and left me with a rank taste in my mouth for the rest of the evening. I didn’t want to make a fuss as I was with my brother who I haven’t seen since Christmas so kind of spoiled the rest of my meal!!!!!

Waited a while for food although a wedding was going on so maybe kitchen very busy as actual restaurant didn’t seem too busy. Children’s mini fajitas were actually two very big fajitas, I asked for a main of chicken tempura and was told they could make it bigger than starter add chips for price of fish and chips, realised after that in fact I only got starter size portion of tempura and a wee tub of chips that cost me an extra £6 or so!

We had a lovely evening as usually. We are very grateful you allow us to use the kids menu when we come along, we are a hospital group that has all had stomach surgery and suits our needs perfectly. Only one thing is since your new menus came some of the group were disappointed you took the kids sticky toffee pudding off!! We did ask and they said it was not popular with kids, can totally understand that. So they will just have to have a full one and half it. Your menu is great, that why we come, it is not all kiddies hot dogs, fish fingers etc, it is real food , great choice and a lovely atmosphere with staff anxious to please. Thanks again!!
