Been going to this restaurant for years, have tried other restaurant's but they are not nowhere near as good! Food is consistently very very good! very friendly and curtious staff,and nothing is too much trouble if you want something extra or changed :-) And 15% discount on take away collection, would highly recommend this restaurant!
