Went here with my wife and young daughter and was very unimpressed. Staff seemed totally disinterested, after waiting over 15minutes to order lunch on a quiet Monday at midday we decided to take our business elsewhere and despite walking past two members of staff they...More

main meal should NOT be served at the same time as a starter. Food was mediocre at best. Too many things were so wrong to mention. Will never return.

The place was dirty and the food was well below average. I came here with my family and we really regretted it. I got the carbonara, it was flavourless and the pasta was overcooked, as was the steak my brother got. Would not recommend.

My partner and I went for dinner the other day and had a wonderful time. Service was good, the waitress was very friendly. We ordered the garlic bread + wedges to start, then we shared the fettuccine carbonara which was pretty exciting when it turned...More
