Nice venue shame about the food and service. Overpriced food and drinks, not worth the money. Certain staff unfriendly. Would not recommend.

Visited with clients from work. The range of food on offer was diverse and some interesting dishes available on the special board. Everyone had an enjoyable time with delicious food and we brought the meal in on budget. The staff were attentive and accommodating to everyone's requests. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Excellent friendly service. Following this visit we again called for lunch, two days later, this time 6 adults and 2 very young children. We arrived... More
