I recently dined at this restaurant with colleagues from work. While I must admit that the food I was served was very tasty there was far too little of it.

All starters that our group tried were very appetizing: Dingle Delights, Caesar Salad and Garlic mushrooms with black pudding. For mains I would recommend the Hake while my wife really enjoyed the salmon and our friends the... More

From the moment we were met at the door we knew we had chosen well. The service brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of choice for everyone on the menu. Food was wonderful and excellent value for money. Definitely be returning here.

We had a family birthday in the dining room tonight and we couldn't have wished for a better night. The food was fabulous and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Thanks a million to all of you
