There is a 3 course menu with plenty of choices of starters, mains & desserts & all for £17.95 (there is just... read more

First date dinner, what a fabulous choice to make, The 3 course meal deal is exceptional value not to say very tasty, well presented and good service. Will definitely be back. I had the steak main course and it was amazing. The other main course was the Chicken breast in Tarragon, it too looked amazing.
