I visited yesterday evening with 2 friends. We were greeted promptly and taken to our table which was near the bar. The decor was rustic with sheep skins lining the chairs and the restaurant itself had a homely feel to it. The service was great, we were made very welcome, as if we were at a friends house having dinner.... More

We didn't book but was advised that it's best to as it does get busy in the evening. The price of the food is a bit on the expensive end so wouldn't be... More

I visited this place on several occasions - with friends and boyfriend on a date. Decorated beautifully with great atmosphere and service. The 2 things which let it down are parking space and toilets. Food is great-large portions and good choice-much cheaper than English equivalent of the standard. You have to open minded person-not every dish is how you would... More

My partner and I came here for a friends birthday meal, so there was a large group of us. Neither of us had tried Polish food so did not know what to expect. The waitress was very polite and efficient, the decor is wonderful with a nice vibe and the food, well that is the star of the show! Hearty,... More

Very eccentric hidden polish restaurant attached to a polish working men's club. Exquisitely decorated in solid wood and sheepskin rugs. Interesting menu translations such as polish trough. I like it a lot. Food was outstanding. Perfect perogi, potato pancakes with the softest slow cooked beef stew. This is comfort food at its best. I'm surprised more don't go in for... More
