Aintree - Pompey Ranger Review
This store is on the edge of a retail park and looks like it is newer than the park and cunningly squeezed in on the edge. Massive amounts of free parking.There is a front patio area with several seats, i don't like sitting on edges of car parks but i can see how some customers who never get outside might like it, and if parents with sqwarky brats were to use it, everyone elses experience inside is quieter and better.
Inside it is light and colourful with a cool in the round booth in the middle and form seating around the edge, a lattice barrier seperates out the back seating area which seemed a bit more cramped, but bright with a white back wall behind which the toilets were located.
The toilets could have been cleaner but I am starting to suspect that is a local problem with the local population thinking it ok to scatter toilet roll across the floor.
They had multiflavour beverage dispensers which is cool BUT the right hand one was empty of coke and fanta, the left was lacking some of yhe fruit flavours to accompany the headline beverages. This resulted in waiting in a queue about 3 deep each time i wanted a refill.
The chicken was very nice and tasty, it has been a slight bit mangled on grill but importantly it was all present and wasn't burnt or dried out. Chip portion could have been larger but was hot and tasty.
A feature i loved st this store was they offered you the tubs of mayonnaise at the till to take back to your table so you don't have to wait for a server to bring them out. This is remarkable time efficient and a nice touch.
