Reviewed 2 August 2018 via mobile

When I first came here almost a year ago I was truly blown away, the size of the portions, the quality of ingredients and the variety and size of the menu, they could cater for anyone and everyone with options from beef or chicken to...fish. However when I returned, a day I had waited and longed for, I left most dissatisfied. A new menu means half the options as before and a real lack of variety. The true disappointment came when the burgers were brought out, almost a third smaller than they used to be and the classic French fried switched out to sloppy thick cut chips. The bacon on the ‘tripple cheese and bacon’ was just basic thin cut ham and a disturbing amount of pickles turned the bun back to a soft dough, impossible to hold with a modecom of dignity. I suspect it was over economisation that has leaded to the downfall, as with a lot of once good restaurants... never substitute quality of the food for quantity of sales and customers in the food and restaurant business! Lastly, with no openable windows and one measly fan without an oscillating option. What once was a delicious, family run establishment had stumbled into an over economised oven.More

Came here with high hopes as my friend told me this was the place to go...how he was wrong. Gone downhill, poor quality and naff portion sizes. Left hungry and disappointed... Not good enough at all
