A pleasure to visit. The food was great, restaurant busy but staff were still very attentive and food didn't take forever like some restaurants when they are busy! Thought it was great value for money. Highly recommended!

We booked last minute and got a table no problem. Vast menu with so many wonderful things to chose. This time my friend and I chose the ham hock, delicious.... More

Visited here in January on Tuesday evening. They offer a 3 course menu for £10, to be honest we were impressed with the amount of choices for both starters and main courses. Often on a mid week deal the menus in other places can be limited so it was a pleasant surprise that this one wasn't so. I would definitely... More

Id be better telling everyone this place is rubbish and that way I would always be guaranteed a table. But I can't because it's not. Great place with great atmosphere with great staff and oh yes, great food. Keep it up guys!

The pate is homemade and delicious, the steak is cooked to... More

Came here a few times with my boyfriend. It is very romantic. The atmosphere and lighting is just right. The french merlot is to die for! and the food is amazing. i tend to get the pasta and my boyfriend tends to get more fish dishes. Never had any complaints. There service is also excellent. Will always remain a favourite.
