Menu unsuitable for children. Otherwise food was good but expensive for lunch. Parking was in adjacent public car park and was difficult to access as my mother was in a wheelchair. Car park costs also added to the cost of our lunch.

The Foodworks is without a doubt a go to place for myself and wife because we consistently get great food and service. The staff know their menu and are attentive but not over the top. The wine list is impressive and has never disappointed us....More
