I can only thank the staff who welcomed us and showed us directly to our table downstairs - which we asked for as we like the atmosphere! Excellent service with knowledgeable staff who are really helpful. Food was great and the wine excellent!... More

Great, good value food, and great service. Pleasantly surprised by a birthday banner and card from the staff after just mentioning it was for a birthday when booking.

Shame as the first two courses were superb but the lasting memory... More

We started with beautiful scallops followed by a delicious steak and juicy prawns. All cooked to perfection! The staff are warm and friendly,... More
