Went for a birthday meal with fiancée and the in-laws and had an amazing time, the staff and atmosphere was spot on! Has starter, main and dessert with drinks and cocktails! Travelled up from Hampshire and would definitely go again if local!

Unfortunately, I ordered something that I didn't like, not that there was anything wrong with... More

We were fortunate to get a table having turned up @ 6pm without a reservation on a Saturday evening, so I would recommend booking in advance, The food was fresh, served piping hot and was very tasty. not overpriced and an early bird offer until 6.30pm also available Would definitely recommend.

We shared a bruschetta and rocket & rock salt garlic bread to start, and then a pasta dish and pizza for mains.

As it was Thursday it was a little quieter than at the weekends. The atmosphere was lovely, the host as we entered was very friendly and showed us to a table in... More

Great little restaurant tucked away (glad we had directions!) The restaurant was really nice inside but the food was the star. We both had pizza which was wood fired and cooked to perfection and the desserts were to die for. Meal for 2 with beer less than £50.
