    3/10 average service and food…. App driven service… surcharges on everything…. Food came out lukewarm… although favours where good…. Staff running backwards and forwards to and back to the kitchen… not knowing which table to take the food to…. Food sitting to long under food lamps before being delivered to the customer’s

    Great night out, happy with food and drinks in general. A little disappointed that everything on the menu was not showing available via the me&u app, however the options we did go with were tasty & generous. Word of warning - the ring burner chicken burger IS HOT (not a complaint, I loved it!)

    Booked for a group of 7 last minute and was glad we got a table. The hangover platter was awesome value and was more than enough for 3 of us for dinner as we were not that hungry after having a big lunch. Food was nice. Service was fast and staff were friendly. The fans were great at keeping us cool too. Would come here again when we visit GC next time.
