Excellent service.

My friend had her 60th birthday party here. We were a group of 18 and all of our meals arrived together. The food was lovely and the staff were very attentive. An excellent night out.

A truly incredible dining experience. Went with my girlfriend and friends,everything on the menu sounded delicious so we each ordered different to see if the chef's actions matched his words. Stunning,beat all expectations. The only shame was I couldn't eat more cheese cake after such a hearty meal. Well worth a visit!

It's always a pleasure to visit this restaurant. The service from Declan is 5 star and I would doubt you would get a better service anywhere else. The food is always plentiful but of the highest standard. You will not be disappointed with a visit.

We came from Newport because we had heard this was a great place to eat and we were not disappointed. For a small establishment it has a substantial menu, service is quick and all the food was delicious. Main meal comes with a good range of side dishes, all in the price. The manager and staff could not be more... More
