We popped in one afternoon and enjoyed the lunch menu so much that we booked a table for the evening. We were so pleased we did. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. The staff were so polite. We even struck lucky for a two-for-one price bonus.

Lovely lunch here once again,the standards are always high and the staff are very pleasant,and friendly. Food is always freshly cooked and tasty,really can't fault it at all. The soup and panini is a great option,reasonably priced too. Really like the club sandwich too,but it is a big eat.Keep up the good work.

Well! Lovely place with great staff. I drank a raspberry mojito and the Drumstick Lolly cocktail which were both absolutely delicious! For food I ate the nachos with chilli beef which again was stunning! I paid £21 for my drinks and food which was reasonable. My friends ordered macaroni which i tried and it was great. The fajitas looked incredible... More

My wife and I had lunch here and took a meal deal. We both had scampi and chips followed by a scone with jam and cream. Delicious food at a very reasonable price.

The food was delicious, and because it was busy and we had to wait approximately 5 extra minutes for our food to come we got free drinks on the house. The atmosphere was very friendly and can not wait to come back :)

We visited this restaurant as a group of five on a Saturday night (8/11/14). Despite being quite busy we were seated and our drinks order taken straight away. We all had starters and mains and not one of us had a single complaint with the food. The fajitas in particular were the best I've ever had - gigantic portions served... More

By far the busiest place we came across, (packed out!) the food was piping hot, freshly cooked, great portions and really tasty. The staff were really friendly and efficient and the food was...
