We had a great breakfast with 2 little ones. I would have given 4 stars if it weren’t for the fact that after receiving our food, I asked the waitress if I could have 2 extra sausages (for the kids); she came back & told me the chef said “no” due to a corporate event taking place. Very strange, didn’t want the extra profit then. So probably wouldn’t rush back because of that.

We went for a family birthday meal, we were seen to straight away & seated in a nice booth. Not much choice on the menu but what we chose was very tasty.

We visited after hearing some good reviews from friends and family. Firstly it was very clean throughout and all staff were friendly and welcoming. We did find the selection of food a little limited, but as expected for an American Grill style restaurant. The service was good and didn't have to wait long to order or for the food/drinks to be served. My only gripe was the cost, it wasnt anything special and for the price I would have expected more. A nice change and the food/atmosphere/service was good. I would visit again but wouldnt be my go to restaurant

It was once a very good restaurant but on my last visit on mothers day the food wasnt that good and i could have had better if i went harvester for half the price supposed to be an American diner but its nothing American about it its just a over priced harvester
