we had a very good meal at the view last week for my birthday, there were 9 of us and the service was excellent. a few of the friends in my party did say the vegetables were not cooked enough., but still enjoyed the meal on the whole. it is a lovely restaurant with great views of the sports centre. a good location in the summer and to bring children. prices are most reasonable. would certainly return for another visit. thank u.
