Was here a few weeks ago and loved it so we decided to come back for a meal. I'm disappointed to have seen a few bad reviews about here because I certainly didn't experience any bad service or food quality. The staff are most pleasant and very attentive. There was a party of 4 at our table and each of... More

Tried this restaurant for my partners birthday and I wish we hadn't. There was only one other couple when we arrived but they insisted on sitting us next to the entrance rather than what seems to be the restaurant. I got the goats cheese and my partner got the salt & chilli squid for starters. I nearly broke a tooth... More

Service was a shambles, orders mixed up. Fish and chips came without chips then the chips that finally arrived were not cooked properly. The chicken in the curry was overcooked and tough as shoe leather, probably leftover from the previous day and reheated. Overpriced and one to avoid.

I was the one who suggested meeting up here, and how I wish I hadn't! I came out embarrassed and so very disappointed. There were only 3 in our party, and there was no-one else there at the time we were ushered to the table. Our order was taken by a very amicable "bar man" - it wasn't complicated as... More

Went here for Sunday lunch with the family of fussy eaters. Staff were fantastic and patient when asked if changes could be made to the way the food was served. Food was great, I had the sizzling pepper steak which is melt in your mouth! There are a great selection of desserts and judging by the oohs and ahhs the... More

Lovely décor and friendly staff but have been a few times and find food inconsistent. Latest visit was for lunch, service prompt and friendly but baked potato was cold and had to be sent back and kids curry came without popadoms which had to be asked for. Once food returned was tasty enough and portions are generous.

The Restaurant is very clean and bright. The service was good and the atmosphere very friendly and welcoming. (I had a very good Sirloin Steak). The owner went out of his way to talk to us before we left which was a nice touch.

This restaurant has very friendly staff who are prompt to take your drinks offer. When asked a question about items on the menu they were well versed. We did not have to wait too long on our food which was piping hot and tasty. The overall option of the food is very good and you would be hard stuck to... More
