We have eaten here on a few occasions and every time the food has been excellent. Good range and very reasonable price, portion sizes also very big. You will not leave hungry although you may have trouble getting up!!!!

We went to this restaurant for a 50th birthday ten of us in total. A good extensive menu. Everyone was served together. The food was hot & tasty. A busy restaurant. Would definitely go back. Booking is recommended.
