Food and drinks were lovely and the itison deal was amazing value. Only real issue was that the toilets weren’t great. Empty glasses and toilet roll all over the floor and sink area, no hot water and one (out of 2) of the toilet doors doesn’t close.

Arrival staff dour, no welcoming smile, no one offered to take our coats or umbrellas, even though it was pouring outside. We were expected to dine with them slung over our chairs! The roast pork was dry, the mash tasted like packet and the roast potatoes were definitely shop bought frozen. Gravy tasted like instant. I make better food myself. Chef kept shouting out orders from the pass in a very loud, aggressive manner. It sounded like being at a football match. The place needs a good coat of paint. Toilet doors don't close and the sink area was soaked. Not a restaurant I visit or would choose, we only dined her as someone had given us a voucher.

Lovely place, excellent food. We were asked to leave our table after 2 hours, which I had forgotten that this was part of the deal. However, it meant we couldn’t have dessert at the table. I feel the waiter could have come back sooner with dessert menu and remind us that we would have to give up table. We passed the table several times and no one else was using it!
Still excellent value

food didn’t match the atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant. The burger was cooked from frozen, and the buns were cold. Food was ok but nothing special about it, and not fresh

We went for the Chateaubriand Saturday. The food was great and fantastic value for money. Very attentive service. My only niggle was the noise level as it was just too loud for my liking

Waiters were clumsy. I had a pen and a knife dropped on the table. The bill came out wrong and despite the booking being done with the itison voucher code in the notes as requested, we were given the wrong menu and had to ask for the correct one. A little more attention to detail would have improved things greatly.
The steak which we payed supplement for was chewy and over cooked.

Went with my wife for her Birthday, the food was amazing we had the Chateuebriand! Best tasting steak I have ever had!
Wasn't the easiest place to find and because the music level is quite high everyone is talking loudly to be heard so not the most romantic

Starters were excellent. My wife enjoyed her winter vegetable casserole and my steak was perfectly cooked. However the hand cooked chips and onion rings were similar to frozen ones. My wife enjoyed her sweet. I ordered coffee and port to be served at the same time but it took almost twenty minutes after my wife was served to arrive.
In terms of service we found that the most disappointing aspect of our visit. We were eventually given delicious complimentary bread only a couple of minutes before our starters arrived. Our main courses arrived timeously but thereafter the waiting staff seemed to lose interest. As well as the coffee issue we couldn't get anyone to bring us the bill and when eventually we did get it no one came to process it despite my making eye contact with a couple of waiting staff. I took it to the bar and a very pleasant barman, after being told that the waiting staff appeared to have lost interest, indicated to me that it wasn't the first time he had heard that.
The bottom line was that if there had been someone obviously managing the staff things would have been much improved.

Service was good the only thing I would say the young lady serves us was very good.
The gentleman who also serviced us was a bit moody which took an edge of the meal
When other customers arrived he was all over them and chatting with them

Went here to celebrate a special birthday. Food, staff etc were all amazing!!! My only negative would be the toilets. 2 out of the 4 were blocked and not very nice at all. Apart from that fabulous day out and will definitely go back!!
