The food was poor. Went to order a starter which was informed many were not on due to no stock. We ordered the Mains three roast dinners and fish and chips, well the fish was sent back as overcooked and one of the roast was wrong order. The food itself is not homemade as the taste had from frozen written... More

Took to table as OK and after pre booking food as party of 7 we sat for 1.5 hours waiting despite chasing 3 times as had elderly parent with us of... More

Booked a table here for my family and I after my graduation today. Was asked to email over our food order at the start of this week so they could prepare.... We waited 1 hour and 15 mins for our main meals despite restaurant being half empty. This was only after prompting the waitresses 3/4 times that we were still... More

Really liked the staff as they were friendly and helpful. Food was great with a nice menu, the cocktails are also two for 1 and were delicious. Lovely garden overlooking the cathedral and the inside is also great as there are remnants of the gallery in the court and the old jail cells.

Set inside the former court building and maintaining much of the original fittings, this is a really interesting venue. Of particular note is a staircase in the middle of the floor down to the dungeon! We visited early evening on Sunday and the place was almost deserted. All three of us had the Sunday lunch and it was very good... More

So last night we thought we'd try dinner at the establishment, I've been here many times for just drinks but never food. The menu online sounded great, but what appeared was definitely not! My chicken parmigiana was burnt and topped with what looked like Tesco value ham. My boyfriend went for the fish and chips. He's fish was so crisp... More
