    Wouldnt go back

    The company advertised on 5pm, we informed the staff on 2 separate occasions we had booked through 5pm however at no time where we given the appropriate menu. Felt it would have created too much of a scene to highlight for a 3rd time that we wished the 5pm offer. Wouldn't go back, felt company did not honour their advertised deal. Although the food was good for those who wish to eat without offer.

    Great experience

    Enjoyed our steak and frites. Had this a few weeks ago and thought the chips being a wee bit soggy was a one off but got the same again. Slightly let down an otherwise enjoyable meal.
