Huge portions!

We chose this restaurant as it is close to our hotel, but had a very pleasant evening with good food and good service. Each of our main courses could have fed all three of us, but that is just a bonus! The waiter said they'd rather have people complain it is too much food than leave hungry. Thumbs... read more

This restaurant has moved around a few times and we promised to pay a visit on this trip. The backdrop is opposite Reid's and the staff have taken a tried and tested formula from their previous locations to create a relatively small restaurant with an excellent menu.

We have been coming to this restaurant since it started. Excellent food, precise and very friendly service. You do have to book due to its popularity. They do offer transport there and back. We cannot praise this establishment enough, it is superb.

I had a roast lamb dinner and my friend ate sliced duck in a tasty sauce. Veggies were of excellent quality and tasted fresh. Proper mash and... More

... and well-cooked food. Local specialities as well as a good general menu. Service was excellent with the waitress and waiter we had on two occasions we dined there were excellent. Would certainly recommend this restaurant.
