Been on numerous occasions and is always lovely. We eat upstairs out of the way, its lovely and quiet. We usually get 5 or 6 dishes to share including a pizza. Nice setting not too expensive

We ate here on the final night of our canal holiday so we hadn't booked on this particular Sunday evening. My other half was delighted to discover that they served real ale, which is unusual for a restaurant, and I was pleased with the wine selection. The decor is nice and lighting is dim enough to create atmosphere whilst still... More

Five of us went for our daughter's 20th birthday. The restaurant was quite busy and it had quite a good atmosphere. After being shown to the table, we were presented with the menu and our drinks order was taken. The girls ordered a bottle of prosescco to share whilst the two men had a pint of lager.

Never eaten here before, but will absolutely do so again. My expectations were not high, but that proved to be wrong very quickly, so apologies for 'yea of little faith!' The service and atmosphere were excellent, thanks to all the staff for that. We had pizzas on the pre-6.30 2 for 10 deal and they were absolutely gorgeous. The sides... More
