However, when the bill came for 2 of us, it was over £70.00 and we... More

4 of us visited the other night, 1 had pre ordered the sea bass fish option, which came as 2 large fillets cooked nicely. You need a bit of a plan not to overfill yourself on the fries that are placed on the table and the pile of salad/rice/vegetables that you help yourself. Next the meat appears with your green...

Staff are nice and friendly and cater for you. Good food. Bit pricey and also make sure you book way in advance for big numbers. 10 of... More

Good size restaurant and easy parking. The food is very good, just keeps coming! You help youself to starter and then meat choices are brought to your table frequently or you can chose to stop this. You will definitely not be hungry! Price is what you would expect for the venue, so all in all a nice place to visit... More

Always knew it was there but never went in. So glad I did. The manager Simon, was so welcoming and all the staff made us feel special. Service elsewhere will never be the same again after having this experience! The meat was amazing. Thank you.
