Lovely night. Very nice food and a nice chocolate dessert. Staff look after us and made us feel relaxed. No rush Wished my son happy birthday and sang to him. Will be back soon. The best place in town for a nice chilled night.

We went on a weeknight and were unfortunately disappointed as have heard and seen many good reviews about the place. I ordered pâté (which tasted very much like it was out of a packet), accompanies by a slice and a half of white bread, along with (fresh from the jar) cranberry sauce. My partner had the minestrone soup to start,... More

This is an ideal place for inexpensive good plain food when you just want something simple for your evening meal. If you are in before 7 you get the early evening menu which is extremely good value. I recommend the roast of the day, lots of meat and vegetables beautifully cooked.

This place is so lovely and you can tell the love that the people have for their business since it's obviously a family run one. The menu is simple really in terms of what's on offer but it's pitched perfectly and every time that I've been there, it's been really busy. Cheap as chips as well and I couldn't really... More

Looked forward to it as had heard quite good reviews, went with my partner and we were both very disappointed, food was average for the price, definitely a lot of other restaurants in town providing better.
