The waitress and owner were extremely friendly and the service was very good. Nice informal and relaxed atmosphere. The food was served promptly, although we were definitely not rushed. Good value for money. Had fish and chips, best so far, salmon also very good. Ended up eating there twice, since the service at a nearby place was so slow, we... More

I booked this place for 7pm, was told no problem. Got there early to avoid any mishaps but was then told to wait...and wait and wait. Got seated at 7.45pm, food came at 8.30pm. I was supposed to go to the cinema at 8.30 but had to run over the street like a fool because of this incident. I don't... More

Surprised by some of the other reviews. I was on with my husband and children (age 2 & 5) for an early dinner, which is usually a stressful event. The staff couldn't be nicer, they took our order quickly and have the children crayons etc to keep them entertained. The children's food came with our starters, which was perfect. I... More
