Portion sizes were a bit large for some of the party but nobody was complaining. Booked for Saturday evening a week... More

We went for the first time last night for my birthday. The food was quite poor, we both had the mix grill, large plate but not much on it if you take away the chips. Gammon was very fatty with tubes in it, disgusting steak was supposed to be medium but cause it was so small it was well overcooked... More

There was even a play station in... More

If you want two peas on a plate with an artistic stripe of "coulis" you will be disappointed.

The Restaurant was warm, friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming, the Staff are obviously dedicated to ensuring guests enjoy the experience - great food - generous portions and very well cooked and served with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble, well worth a visit. Room 1 was home from home, everything worked and extremely pleasant, ideal for business... More
