Visited many times over the years and the pizzas and pasta were always very good. What has happened? My visit this time will be my last. The pasta was bland, the black pudding ended up in the bin and the only consolation was the chips which were OK. Oh, the diet coke was OK as well. Suggest the owners sit... More

I went to St John's yesterday for a friends meal, which I was looking forwards to for a while. I was totally disappointed when I sat down and asked the waiter what gluten free options there are as i have an allergy to gluten in which he replied "no.". I repeated my question and he said "We don't do gluten... More

I have been a regular customer of this restaurant for over 30 years ,it has had a few changes of management over that period. I thought it could not get any better, how wrong could I be ! Not only have the new management kept the original menu, they have added an exceptional Mediterranean menu. This restaurant is a hidden... More

Ordered pizza, chips and pasta, delivery was quick, food was awful. The greasiest pizza and chips i have ever seen, coudn't eat it. Pasta was ok a bit bland. Will never order from here again. What a complete waste of money and it's expensive for a box of grease.

the first I placed an order was for a pizza. It was warm and had to re heat it in the microwave. I took 2 hours to come. The 2nd time was for a pizza and chips. It came on time but the pizza was swimming in fat. Still no call back from the restaurant. They got my money so... More

Just to say, again, what a great family friendly place this is and how lovely the food is. We visited with grandparents and 8 mtg old son. The waitress was fantastic and coupled with the new menu including a wider range of Mediterranean food, with loads of great dishes to choose from, we all had a lovely evening.

We ordered an eat out home delivery, consisting of: a smoked sausage supper, margarita pizza, chips. Haggis supper and onion rings. They claim to be "made to order" but you could obviously tell the haggis had been sitting out for a while. The pizza was cold by the time of delivery and didn't taste fresh at all. The onion rings...
