Great Service and Food. We visit this restaurant at least twice a month as the place is just perfect for our needs: Great location Tasty food Wonderful service Lovely atmosphere inside.  The recent refurbishment has really enhanced the look of the place and we shall continue to be regular customers whilst the management keep it at such a high standard.
