We had the Groupon deal otherwise it would be a rip off. The chicken is really weird and unlike any chicken I've ever had, it had really thick skin with lots of fat under it and not a great deal of meat something like what I imagine a battery hen would be like. The ribs were nice so go for them if you visit.

We called in for lunch after shopping . A nice welcome ,shown to our table by the waitress , who took our drinks order. We chose our meal from the lunchtime menu , where you can choose one course for £6.99 or 2 courses for £9.99. We both chose two courses and chose a meal and dessert.
Didn’t have to wait too long for the food arrive. I chose the BBQ Cheese, chicken wrap, which came with a little pot of coleslaw and fries. Folllowed by chocolate brownies with a scoop of ice cream, cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce. (Very nice). The meals were hot and we were looked after very well. Good visit would go again and recommend xxx

Went to F&B tonight and it was dead (bad sign) and I was looking forward to a nice catch up with a friend but the food was just dire. It’s really gone downhill in recent times, the kitchen is open and you can watch them make the food, it just seems like no one cares just chucked together, and not really that cheap for what you get.

So if we break the dishes down...

Hotdog with bbq pulled pork (£8.79), poor quality hotdog (had better in ikea for 50p), cheap soggy bun, and microwaved congealed bbq pulled pork smothered in sickly sweet bbq sauce. On top of re-heated fries which tasted like cardboard. Horrific!

Salmon with baked potato and green veg (£13.99) frozen salmon, which was re-heated ok. Microwave veg, well a few and a terrible jacket potato again seen the microwave covered in cheap sour cream. Horrible.

I honestly don’t know why anyone would go there?

We’ve visited this branch many times, generally without complaint, but our early Saturday evening experience was just rubbish.

We had booked a table but it took 10 minutes for the staff to work out which one. We were served by a different member of staff with every interaction so there was no continuity.

We watched 3 people walk out so were lucky to have been served at all, the restaurant was a mess, floors filthy, food brought out with no cutlery, and what we ate was mediocre. Pasta overcooked and served lukewarm. Didn’t have the will to send it back.

Judging by the recent experience of others, something is going wrong at this restaurant at the moment.

1. We waited to be seated for what felt like half an hour
2. Table didnt have cutlery so we nicked some.
3. Drinks didnt arrive until after food. When we reminded them.
4. Kids menu needed pens....they had run out.
5. Waitress acted like she wanted to top herself.
6. Food was dire.
7. I feel robbed.
8. I will never get that hour plus of my life back again.
9. Why do they Backstreet Boys in an american/italian restaurant? The final straw.
