We experienced delicious food in a lovely atmosphere. We would definitely return to try more of the menu as there were so many great options.
Service good, decor impressive, food average. We had ribs (dry but sauce tasty) & prawns to start. Chicken burger & chefs burger for mains. The burgers were dry and not that tasty, the chips and coleslaw were good. Also the toilets could do with renovation - there are broken & missing wall tiles & the seat was chipped. With 1 beer each the bill was over £50, which I thought was a bit pricey.
brilliant food and service, at a great price! the menu was appealable to all people and the atmosphere and interior made the restaurant feel really quirky. AMAZING cocktails
Been here many times and usually really good but this is a venture that is rapidly going downhill. Ordered 2 starters and two steaks. Was informed that the steak didn't come with any sides... this has to be a recent change as they used to come with chips... The mains arrived before the starters, and when the starters did arrive one was missing. Sirloin was ordered medium rare, arrived without a hint of blood and only a little pink... i.e. overdone. It was very quiet considering it was a Sunday afternoon but service was slow to the point we ended up going down to the bar to get the bill. The menu has been whittled down considerably with only a narrow choice of dishes available these days. Genuinely used to love this place but we won't be back.
After a slow service the time before visiting B & B we avoided going for a while to see if service improved. A half full top floor we thought was ideal for a decent service. Unfortunately service and quality had both diminished. After a 30 minute wait for a Chateaubriand, the waiter informed us that it would be another 10 minutes wait. Fobbed off, another 25 minutes later we were served a small, dry cut of beef along with boiled broccoli rather than the chargrilled that it was supposed to be served with. After I explained not minding waiting a whole 55 minutes if what we ordered was half decent but it was not, then it could have restored my faith. The waiter kept asking if there was anything that could be done for us to stay to eat the disappointing food and make up for the bad service but unfortunately when you wait that long for poor quality and badly cooked food - when it's presented like that it completely kills an appetite. Also it was very cold upstairs.
Brilliant food and atmosphere however the food was slow to arrive even though there weren't many covers waiting. Will definitely be back to try more dishes. And an added bonus you can use your taste card
Stunning food, great atmosphere. It was our First time there, we will defo be calling back again soon. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Great stuff
Great food & service. The staff were polite & courteous. I had the Deluxe burger and my partner had the pulled pork on mac and cheese.
First of all I love your pigs in blankets. They are the best BUT the food always comes slightly cold and the ribs which I have had on 2 occasions have been cold and hard and chewy (not soft and tender). The chateaubriand that I have had on 2 occasions now has also come slightly cold. Such a shame as I really like this place.
Had the pigs in blankets & meatballs for starters, burgers for mains with chips & slaw & topped off with a cornflake tart to share. All very tasty. Good service by our attentive waitress. Couple of items were not available on the menu, which I think is quite limited anyway. Overall nice evening.
