I am sorry, even if this place served up it's best meal ever, it would still not be worthy of the marks provided.  Many of the Adver reviews smack of advertising articles.  usually, ceap places do well in Tripadvisor ratings, and this place can't even manage that.  My own experience from two visits is a stunningly poor offer, managed just as badly.  it was indeed cheap, but very low quality to the extent you scratch your head whether you could actually do a better job yourself for a third of the cost.

Which is my rule of thumb when ever we go out to eat. The exception is the woodlands edge, after all 50,000 flies can’t be wrong. Oh and it’s right on my doorstep so is a lazy approach to dining.

The mum's race at my kids' school is brutal, throwing evils at each other during the kid's races and being super competitive about the results... I think last year there was one mum all tracksuited up and stripped down to her running gear before the race.

Just got in from work. I’d like to watch a rerun of today’s game. 15 minute highlights on BBC2 at 11.15 pm, then BBC1 will show the whole game at 12.30 am finishing at 02.00.

My wife hates football but every major tournament she’ll make an effort to get involved, watch some games with me and the like.
I wish she wouldn’t.
