Hadn't been here for years and won't be returning anytime soon. Ordered food and drinks at the bar and our drinks and starters arrived fairly quickly. Starters were luke warm and had that tell tale microwave skim around the plate ☹️️45 minutes later and our plates and empty glass/cup were still sitting there. Waitress eventually came to collect them and... More

We used to go to Justinless a lot. The prices were great. The place was cozy but big enough that we always got a seat. And did I mention the prices? £5 for a meal. Where can you go wrong. Before the refurbishment, the food was great. Expect the Steak and ale pie which was an amazing flavoured gravy but... More

Ate lunch here last Friday. We expected it to be busy but it was really quiet, apparently it is busier in the evenings. The dining area is large, pleasantly decorated and there are several different areas to sit in. There is a lot of choice on the very reasonably priced menu including set 2 & 3 course meals which were... More

I went with my sister for lunch. I had not been in since the place was refurbished. The actual venue was beautiful, clean and very welcoming. The food was OUTSTANDING. With it being lunch I thought I would have a flat bread it was by far the best I had ever had. It was presented on a wooden platter and... More
