The discount offered was not honoured. Would not go back to home sweet home again. Very disappointed.

Had a really good meal and the service was fantastic! Some of the burgers include fries but they come on the burger so there’s only a handful and you’ll probably need a side order. Nothing wrong with the food though it was fab!

The hot chocolate was very bitter and all we could taste was bitter cocoa powder. Had to ask for extra milk and even then it was barely drinkable. The food finally arrived and my toast was solid, my egg was cold and my avocado was accompanied by a hair.
First and last visit

Maître d' was extremely rude and unaccommodating on arrival to the simplest of requests. He was completely uninterested. The service was dreadful, the food arrived BEFORE our drinks. No apology and took over 30 minutes. We were put off ordering a dessert as it would take so long. Really disappointing as we genuinely love this restaurant and very upset it is closing down. The feeling we got from staff as that they didn't care as it was closing shortly.

We got 50% off our bill and service was great but it was a shame the menu was a little different and eggs cali wasn't available for me. Pancakes are nice and cakeshakes worth getting at least once.

We love this place. Gutted it’s closing. I had my 40th breakfast in the secret room upstairs a while back.
Food was lovely. Service was fast and friendly and the cake we took home was good as always. So sad to see this place go.

Hi!
We overall had quite a below average experience at Home sweet home.

Main points:
- Our food took nearly an hour to arrive during our lunch break, due to miscommunication of tickets
- The chicken in a basket I ordered wasn't in a basket, and it was just three small pieces of chicken, which was underwhelming
- Due to the ticket miscommunication, 2 small tables, and 2 big tables were served before us, even though we ordered before they were even present at the restaurant.

Positives:
- Milkshake was bang on amazing
- The waiter did apologise, and we did get two drinks off our bill

I would return for the milkshake, not sure on the food.

Hope this helps!

Cheers
Zack

Sadly there weren’t enough of the special Xmas dinner for our party to have it. Seems short sighted in the planning.......

Shame they're closing down, this was actually the best experience we've had here. For once, we were seated, served, and bill paid within 30 minutes, where normally that's what we would have waited just to get our coffees. Guess the trick was always to go very early, before everyone gets in; they never seemed able to cope with 10-15 tables full at once.

The food wasn’t very good. The burgers in particular were so over cooked. I asked for mine without a burger bun and I couldn’t even eat it with a knife and fork it was so burnt and hard.

This place has gone down hill massively. The milkshakes were thin and had no flavour, mac balls and halloumi were greasy and had no flavour.

Had a lovely time. Food was lovely, chicken was delicious. Took our puppy and the staff were so lovely. I can’t remember our waiters name but he couldn’t have been more attentive. Will definitely be going back.

Food was good although the menu didn't list that the dish contained peppers which I cant eat, when it came this was annoying as I had to pick them all out. Service was quite slow considering it wasn't very busy, but would go again as food tasted good and the other people I was with really liked theirs.

Very poor portion of the food, not really worth the price. Customer service can be significantly improved. Moreover, two different menus for outside and inside are ridiculous. I won’t be back.

I love home sweet home and I'm hoping Sunday was just a blip - but service was incredibly slow (despite the fact that I had booked a table), and when food did come the taste was ruined slightly by the luke warm temperature of the food. One of my friends also was very sick after the pancakes.

I have had many much more pleasant experiences at home sweet home so like I said, I hope my last visit was just a blip.
