Went here last night, restaurant was very busy and had a couple of large parties booked in. We were seated immediately and orders were taken quickly, which was good. Starters arrived in reasonable time, but our garlic bread didn’t appear at all. This wasn’t a great problem as the starters were plentiful, so we just said we were no longer... More

Once a year I get together with 7 friends and we always go here. The welcome you receive is lovely. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they have even cooked things for us that are no longer on the menu. We all enjoy different food so I can speak for us all when we say the menu is varied... More
