Really Fresh Food

We visited this restaurant as part of a large group. The food was really good. I have a dairy intolerance and the dairy free/gluten free meals were clearly marked on the menu which was brilliant. The staff were really helpful and very pleasant and we all had a great time.

I really enjoyed my meal here last night, from the minute we walked in the door. The friendly welcome, service and the food itself was excellent. Fresh, hot, presentation and most important taste. Will be back
