Me and my boyfriend booked a table at around peak time on a saturday for the restaurant and once we arrived we was greeted by Declan the owner, who kindly escorted us to the waiting area where a lovely and bubbly waitress took our drinks order. Declan informed us on changes to the menu which was very professional of him;... More

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.
