2 of our 4 main courses were nicely cooked, but the other 2, the Hake and poached egg were overdone and the steak was well done, when she’d asked for medium to well done. We did not complain at the time as to have it cooked again, would have meant them eating their meal after we’d finished.

Service was pretty slow as we sat for ages, after being put to our table. We did say one more was to follow but she came 2 mins after we had sat down. Two of us asked for water & we got two pints of lager? No use when I'm pregnant. The waitress only heard "pint" as to "pint of water". She did come and apologize. Its a mercy the other waitress paid more attention to us. My steak wasn't that hot but we had waited so long, I couldn't be bothered to say anything. I also only realized afterwards, that I didn't get the usual salad on the plate that always come with it? For the price of around 25 pounds for my main course, it wasn't worth it. I'd been better off being at home and making it all. The girls enjoyed theirs but certainly room for a lot of improvement. I will say, the puddings was nice. I cant see me being back in a hurry, which is a shame, as I've been loads but this is the 2nd time in a year that I've been disappointed. That might not seem much, but your not going to keep coming back, unless its been brilliant.

Delicious food. I had the Chefs Chicken Liver Pate. ..so tasty, and the accompanying chutney was excellent. Main course was Monkfish and Tiger prawn Scampi in light batter. Cooked to perfection. ..light golden brown crisp batter, served with salad, mushy peas and chips. Very nice too. And staff were all pleasant and friendly.

Being a Sunday night the restaurant seemed a little quieter than usual, not the same 'buzz'. However this in no way detracts from excellent food and service.

Pre-ordered food for 12.40, only came out at 12.50. Had to be back at work for 1.30 but due to slow service only got back at 2. Prawns were chewy and not alot of monk in the mountain of batter. Ordered french fries and got wedges. Pudding was delicious though!

Waiting staff very pleasant however the food is not great. Very average. And way over priced. Very little home cooking, a lot of it tastes frozen, reheated or deep fried. £6 for a frozen pudding is too expensive.

We had Mains and desserts only and were in for 2.5 hours! An extremely long wait for the mains to arrive. We were only a table of four and the restaurant was only about half full. The rib-eye steak was raw in places and looked grey and bashed about, this was eventually replaced with a fillet steak. The gentleman waiter was very helpful in this circumstance and agreed to only charge the rib-eye price. I would say it was a bit overpriced for the meal offered, which was quite basic really, no matter how fancy the serving vessel is i.e. a slate plate. We will be back, but hoping for better upon our next visit.

Saturday night was very busy, I'd say easily overbooked. You could tell our poor waiter was properly harassed. We waited over an hour for our starters, one of our party had to leave before the main course came as she had to go to work, and had waited so long for it. Past 9 o clock, our table was booked at 7:15... when she went to pay for her drink she was offered no apology at all and told she had to be patient and wait to be served to pay for her drink. Her meal had then not been removed from the bill. Some of the steaks came over cooked and without sauces they'd been ordered with, when questioned about it we were told the sauce had sold out, but no explanation was offered when food was delivered. It's a shame as we had a nice night otherwise. just seemed like a long time to wait for our food. I had the burger which was amazing, and we did feel for the boy working, he was trying his best.
