'Delicious Food'

Finally got a table - definitely worth the wait, food was delicious and good value for money!

We had a lovely evening and a lovely meal here. The food was quite basic but that could be down to our food choice. The chicken and bacon in peppercorn sauce I had was lovely though. Overall a nice evening

We came here to celebrate our Engagement. Food is fantastic quality and hearty sizes! Service is great, and menu is reasonably priced. There aren't many seats and can be busy if you haven't booked but we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

I have been through my fair share of Italians in my time, the tiramisu here was truly something special. Was a wonderful evening out with friends and would be back in a heart beat. The wine list is comprehensive and... More
