The restaurant was packed but the buzz around the place persuaded us to enjoy a drink in the cocktail bar while a table became available. The serving staff were bustling about and looked happy as they worked. We were seated outside which reminded us of our holiday in... More

Between 5 and 7 midweek, the happy hour is great value - litre of house red or white wine for £9.95 and it's decent as well! Grab a table outside ans sit under the heat lamps - great atmosphere!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit again. Excellent staff attentive but not overly intrusive. Decided to go for the little plates to share between my friend and I for lunch. Complete delicious as always. We had garlic mushrooms, pate, meatballs, king prawns and chicken skewer, perhaps my only niggle was that I like my food piping hot and this could have been... More

Have always found the food to be lovely and service prompt and friendly. Wide selection on menu, with plenty of vegetarian options so should suit most tastes. Prices are also reasonable, especially with a loyalty card (10% discount on food). Although very central, the restaurant is tucked away in a quaint courtyard, giving it a great atmosphere both indoors and... More
