Had a meal for four, everyone enjoyed it immensely and it was fantastic value. The portions are very big which was ideal for four extremely hungry persons. Will most certainly return

We went to this restaurant for the first time bringing two young grand children for lunch. It is very suitable for families - the childrens menu is good and extensive adult menu. All food was freshly cooked, tasty and very well presented. Very highly recommended for family get togethers and special occasions.

We go here all the time and we have never had a bad experience either with the staff or the food. The steaks are gorgeous no complaints. The service we get is excellent we always ask for a booth table and they always make sure that we get one of these. The managers always come around and make sure everything... More
