Will definitely be going back, food was top class, not a bad dish served to the 4 of us...actually no,the little lad didn't like his garlic bread because it had green in it!! ( He's 3, what would he know?, ended up eating it for him and that was delicious too). Really great food with very nice staff too. Recommended.

I last reviewed this restaurant two years ago and it was the best. Just back tonight and it is even better. I have never said that of any other place. As good as but never better.

I visited this restaurant with a hen party of 9 people. The food was amazing as was the service. They got one order wrong but corrected it without any fuss and apologised. Which was lovely. The cocktails were delicious. The entertainment was excellent and after dinner we all had a dance. Fantastic environment would definitely visit again.

As a family of six including a vegetarian, we had a three course meal here one Friday night. A round but wobbly table was allocated and the food came in good time. The food itself was very tasty, hot and extremely enjoyable ( unlike the female singer). Would definitely recommend but take a fat wallet .

Really nice food, just not the best location on the edge of the motorway! Great, friendly service too though. Would recommend if staying locally.

Beautiful food, husband said it was the best meal he had had on the coast in 12 years, some recommendation as he is very fussy. Small wine list but excellent selection.
