One of my old time favourites

Love the deals in here. Love the cocktails Service is never the best, there is never enough staff but I never let it deter me. The value for money and the quality of the food is fantastic.

This is the first time I ate here but unfortunately it might be the last. Despite it being an almost empty restaurant our waitress Kate, older blonde woman disinterested in her job, insisted on sitting whatever few people came in all in the same section! I mean literally could count the empty tables yet a 4 top was seated directly... More

I had the vegetable spring rolls for starter which were nice but a little bit too much sauce on the noodles for my liking. For the main course I had the burger and chips which were very tasty. Reasonably... More

Visited here at the weekend as it was across the street from our hotel. The food was first class and staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, (one female member of staff even checked if their aaaa-mazing homemade ice cream was made with pasturised egg as im pregnant and didnt want to risk me getting ill.)...
