Food lovely and lots of it! They literally have something for everyone
Amazing Sunday lunch. I had the brisket which was delicious. Highly recommend
Excellent Sunday lunch very tasty Great service and very friendly
Staff are so welcoming from the minute we arrived and the food was delicious. We were served by Mya who is a credit to the restaurant, she was chatty all through our visit and gave us advice on different items on the menu. We will definitely be back!!
Food was delicious. Kids meals aren’t great value and look tasty. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely return. However a little ironic to be told on arrival there was no pork available at a place called Porky’s? When I questioned this again the waitress checked and said it was only the belly pork for the Sunday lunch which was not available. I called twice after booking online to see if we could get a table by the window so we could watch our kids at the play area, but couldn’t get an answer. They were no table seats when we arrived, but we were sat near window. View was obscured by a wall so asked if we could move 1 table back which was empty so we could see park. After checking, waitress said we could, but we’d have to leave in an hour as it was booked from 1.30 (our booking was 12.30). The restaurant was filling up so didn’t want to have to rush our food so stayed put. However I don’t see why they could’t have simply swapped the two table reservations? Slightly annoying as when we left at 2pm table was still empty, as it had been the whole time we’d been there.
There were no staff to welcome us in the bar when we first walked in,so we had to find someone in the restaurant, who wanted to take us back through to the bar, to check what table we were supposed to have which confused us and seemed pointless. The restaurant and bar looked good, but still some unfinished work that needs finishing off, like wires hanging down and wall in ladies toilets not finished. Our children enjoyed the park which was a good way of entertaining them while we waited for food, which came pretty quickly. The kids ordered a ham pizza & fries and a hotdog & fries, we ordered a pulled pork sandwich & fries, a philly cheese steak sandwich & fries and a side of onion rings. The food was disappointing, the hotdog bun was dry as sticks, our daughter had one bite and couldn’t eat the rest, I tried it and agreed with her. My pulled pork bun was also dry along with the philly cheese steak ciabatta bun. Our other daughter thought the pizza was ok, however the ham on top was hard, and she would normally wolf down a pizza, but she left half of it. The phily cheese and pulled pork sandwich was cold as were the onion rings. Very disappointed. We had been looking forward to coming here even though we had heard mixed reviews, we decided to try for ourselves. However after experiencing the food, We won’t be back.
Unfortunately it seems the restaurant is too big for the kitchen, when full, waiting times were lengthy. On our visit, our table wasn't ready, and we weren't offered drinks while we were waiting, which I did expect at least. When seated, we found the seat draughty due to the door being wedged open, and to be fair they did relocate us. The food, once it arrived, was absolutely delicious and I would recommend to all my friends, but only if perhaps the check their busy times and avoid. I also felt that the waiting staff (some of which seemed to just be hanging around at times) could be more proactive, and checking if diners needed more drinks and such like. Overall, a lovely meal, they just need more attention to detail.
Food was great, service was too. Shared a couple of starters between four people which was more than enough. Main courses were huge and puds were really nice. Good quality food in huge amounts, can’t fault it. Table was close to the door and made it a little draughty and cold, but is was very cold outside, so not a negative from my point of view but I feel it could irritate some people. All in all, excellent...really enjoyed it. The booking experience using the Quandoo app was good too.
Hi as a keen meat lover I was over the moon with the sausage and other various meats, it was so tasty it filled me right up, I was ready to exploded after my first taste of the sausage, I would definitely cum again over and over, I went for the rare back steak 🥩 thanks dean tint hewett
Staff were quite friendly on entering the restaurant. There were a few things not available on the menu however the food wr had was nice and served in a good time. Service on drinks was quite slow. We sat with empty glass and staff were just stood chatting to one another and not particularly engaged with customers. At that point we decided just to pay the bill and leave. Would go again but would hope to have the choice of full menu available.
