We went on a Saturday night, the ambience was nice and friendly and the food was very good. Gluten free menu was not available but they had several choices.

Fantastic food, brilliant service, great atmosphere, highly recommend the steak. Maybe a little pricey but I think it's worth it, definitely go back again.

We have been going here for so long now; family gatherings, intimate meals, they do it so well. Good food - good service, what else can you say?
