We were met by a lovely young lady at the bar who made us some great cocktails and... More

Although there is only a small selection of vegetables they were all delicious! The option to have as many sausages as you wanted was definitely an extra bonus! The meat was either pork or beef (I would have preferred another alternative) but the meal was lovely! The chocolate brownie cheesecake was a personal highlight and definitely worth a try!

Food was excellent, all the dishes attractively presented, cooked to perfection, efficiently and attentively served.
