We come here at least once a week and absolutely love it, food is excellent and service is always quick and efficient. The manager is amazing, we had one evening where some other customers where rude and he took care of it straight away. Never had a poor experience :)

Had lunch with a friend. Food was nice nothing to shoot about. But the table and chairs were not too comfortable. Good place to eat and go.

We arrived just before 6 on a chilly January Wednesday and although the town was quiet, this place was nicely busy - perfect in that it we could get a table, but plenty of people there to help give it a lively atmosphere. You can get a great meal in just an hour or so (less if you really wanted),... More

Been going here for many years, always a great time, great food and fab service. Never been disappointed, staff are friendly and the food is great value for money as well as something for all taste, even for people scared of trying something different.
