The customer service was terrible, they even forgot someones order. The waiter treated us like school children, shouting and putting us on pressure to order quickly. Won't be going back there again.

Visited this prior to a party in town and it was our first visit to the restaurant. Great service throughout the meal and food was very nice. I think it has recently been refurbished and the overall feeling was that it was a well looked after establishment.
