The staff were friendly. My wife ordered the haddock special which she thought was lovely. I ordered the chicken curry which was good. The atmosphere was nice and busy.

Had a family lunch and found tables outside. Decent menu with a nice selection for kids. Friendly staff & reasonable prices. Everyone apparently enjoyed what they ordered. Nice place for a sunny day.

The place was crowded. Very promising. But the food was a dissapointment. The place has potential, but I don't understand the high rating.
