Went to celebrate 25yr anniversary, 21st and 55th birthdays. Wished we hadn't. £6 for 2 potato skins which a child could eat in 2 mouthfuls. Blooming onion tasted powdery. A short rib which was not only as tough as leather but was so dry it tasted like it had been rolled in sawdust. Not much of a desserts list and I am sure someone ate half of the cookie crumble pie because it was so small. We continually had to search for a waiter/waitress to order drinks and even when it came to pay £285.00 we had to search for someone to take payment. Very disappointed and certainly wouldn't return to celebrate the only thing good about the whole experience was I had my family with me.

Atmosphere was ok, friendly staff but food just didn't quite meet expectations. Charcoal bun was actually food dye not charcoaled, wings had a dab of bbq on instead of being actually bbq flavour/fully coated, so flavours were beliw par and all the meals looked plain and dull when they came out and no sense of presentation for any of the meals but especially the desserts.

The food was lovely, great value for money. Only issue we had was one of the lady waitresses was on the phone arguing with somebody while at work. Right by our table. The lady that served us however, was Soo lovely.
