A wee mid-week dinner

Busy place, booking is recommended. Food was delicious and our waitress was eager to help our choice. Not really a place for children as it is very busy

We always take friends and visitors to this bar & grill and have never been disappointed. It's popular with locals so it can be busy. Staff are always friendly and efficient. Food is good. Some vegetation options including their "Garden Burger."

I have been here many times, food is good. Wish they had more options fro Gluten free. As when I go there, there is only 1 item I can have other then salad. it can get loud here, so if you want a quiet romantic atmosphere this isnt the place, good to be with friends.
