Truly horrible experience on this occasion. We were not made to feel welcome in the slightest. There were lots of tables that were not reserved however a member of staff Saif she didn't think we would fit in as we couldn't take a reserved table....When I went to look there were at the very least 5 tables which did not have a reserved sign. We were only approached when the children started to filter in. Feel like they couldn't be bothered with kids or moving tables. Not that we needed tables moved. A comment was made that you might fit in but won't be able to sit together. There were to unreserved tables of 4 right beside each other. A bigger booth that would easily of fit us which was also un reserved. However we felt so unwelcome and the person described avoided eye contact and didn't seem to want to talk to us after finding plenty of tables, so we decided not to stay.More

Used to go here years ago but it went downhill and over the past few months I've returned to be pleasantly surprised. Menu is good, caters for my gluten intolerance, staff are friendly especially Pauline. Not too long to wait on food and the children...seem to enjoy the small play area. Definitely a nice wee place to grab a quick bite.More

Very good service from our server. Very large menu choice with lots of offers. Would be a good place to eat if you were in a larger group. Food was passable.

Should have gone to spec savers as the machine is there for everyone to see. You pass it on the way to the entrance and it is taken off your bill. It's a deterrent for people who park and then shop. As for the food I can... More
