We booked through bookatable £14.95 for two courses plus a glass of wine. Having had an excellent meal on a visit to this restaurant a few months ago we were pleased to be offered this deal. On arrival as soon as we mentioned that we had booked with bookatable the waiter ( ?manager) whipped our menus away without a word... More

I've been here four times now and as there is so much I want to eat always struggled to choose from the menu. Every time I have really enjoyed the food and look forward to eating there again!

We were offered a 2 course meal plus glass of wine for £14.99. We thought that the meal would be ok, but just that. We were pleasantly suprised by the quality of the food, pleasant atmosphere and good service. We will definitly return.

We booked through bookatable for a 2 courses & a glass of wine for £14.95 per person. This also included bread & oil/vinegar & a side of garlic pizza to share. My husband enjoyed his food, I did not - my starter was very greasy & salty & the main was bland. The service was also very poor, the restaurant... More

Manager knew he was right and customer wrong. Main course salty and undercooked. Never got the chance to order s desert, service too slow. Shame. Been ok in the padt. Not the last... More

My first visit to this eatery. The Lamb shank I ordered was undercooked and as tough as old boots when served to me. After complaining I selected a Lasagne which was average at best, then to my amazement they still charged me full price for substandard food. I thought the service was poor as well, and culminated in me being... More

Lovely place to go: nice decor (shame about the music), lovely atmosphere, spacious and great service! I had a lovely boar tortellini for my main. It was beautiful.🐗🙌 Can't wait to go again. Let's have some nice Vivaldi or some Puccini playing eh - not usher! ;-)
