    An enjoyable evening for both of us with very good food and an excellent Marlborough wine. Service somewhat disappointing for such an establishment. Value for food and beverage was very acceptable.

    Nice venue, comfortable seating, toilets clean but getting a little shabby (broken lock, Palmolive soap on the counter). We had a table for 4 booked, 6 chairs were left at a round table, no one thought to remove the unrequired 2. Service was v slow & 1 hot sandwich came out cold. Apologies were insincere. Coffee order was forgotten. Great location

    We had a table booked for 6 people for lunch When finally seated, we were given menus and our order was taken. Two of us requested that the triple decker sandwich be converted to a double decker which we were told would be “no problem “. A second server came back to tell us that two of the drinks we ordered weren’t available so had to be changed. There was a 20 minute wait on drinks and at least 35 mins for food and yes you’ve guessed it - the sandwiches we ordered arrived as triple deckers instead of what we asked for. We just took out the extra slice of bread but what a waste. The restaurant was busy and the quality of the food was ok, if not very hot. We live locally so it’s convenient but I feel I’d go more often if the service was better

    Food was excellent . Unfortunately service was haphazard, had to go after our request for a glass of wine , slow( very) to "dress the table" and had to request S & P . However the food was great , surprised at beer options( draught) and when I asked for ice cream - I got just that -possibly 2 scoops - no dressing . Staff seemed to be all over the place rather than allotting to particular tables . Overall food was great PS place was busy

    Booked for 3 people, 3 old friends who haven't met up in nearly 6 months. Got a lovely table in a quiet corner. Food was amazing and staff were excellent. They allowed us to sit and chat without feeling we were being rushed out the door. Great food and a great atmosphere we will definitely be returning

    Cold outside but restaurant really cosy. I and the other adult thought our food was superb and had great taste. The two Bucks, 7 and, enjoyed their nuggets and chips, apple. They were delighted with a pudding to finish. A lovely hour and an half spent at GFP and a very good waiter attended us

    Lovely decor and trimmings, some staff very nice and helpful some not so much.. food could definitely be of better quality and value, I was left waiting almost 25 minutes for one piece of toasted bread which had been part of my original order but was left out so when I now questioned it I was left 25 minutes for one piece of toast. Sometimes a half uttered ‘ sorry’ doesn’t have meaning.

    We really enjoyed our return to restaurant. Food was good service n staff excellent. Only problem was heating. It was a very cold night and heating seemed to be from reverse air condition/ heating. I find that method is not warm enough on the floor. We will be back on a warmer night.

    I eat many times in this place was very disappointing. Soup was very blend no taste. Usually you get nice brown bread with it this time was sliced bread from a bag. Probably because it wasn't fresh it was slightly toast. If u don't get back to the good quality taste food that used to be you going to lose customers.

    The food was lovely, unfortunately for the second time visiting the drinks were delayed. We had our meal almost finished by the time we received them, after having to ask twice for them. Disconnect between the drinks area & rest of the restaurant. That said would recommend as the food is lovely.

    The place was really cold, the service was not great, we were all given different menus and told different things by different staff members, food was quite disappointing, the portions were small and the food was a bit cold, overall a disappointing experience and not worth the expense, I wouldn't recommend it and I won't go there again

    This was not a great experience. Booked table for 1pm, seated at 12.58pm but didn't receive our food til 13.55pm. Had to ask for our order to be taken. Plenty of staff. At least 4 tables empty so not very busy. Implies not enough chefs. No apology received. Not the only ones waiting to be served. It was my wife's birthday, so this experience spoiled her special occasion. My daughter didn't receive the food she ordered. Didn't bring it to anyone's attention in case it would take a long time to be corrected. When we first arrived, the male waiter behind counter was making drinks....took 2 glasses down using his hands inside the glasses......so off putting. Hygiene clearly not a priority. The 4 tables that were free, were not tidied up or cleaned. The free waiter/ waitress could have done this which would have greatly assisted the front of house staff member, in being available to greet customers. Food in general was good and value for money.

    Arrived yesterday for a reservation. Understandably busy on a Saturday afternoon, however we were about 30 mins waiting to order. When the food eventually arrived. It was fine, it was an hour by the time we had plates in front of us. The side order was missing. We were waiting a while, then told it would be 2 minutes but it never arrived. I did notice the manager (I think) that came on duty around 12.30 was very good and did try to rectify things around us. One of the waiters was very abrupt to the customers and asked for orders of a couple next to us in a manner I wouldn’t expect of that establishment (he didn’t serve us) and it made the environment very frosty. I always enjoyed dining there and would maybe consider it again in the future but we left disappointed
