Busy & friendly with attentive staff and varied menu with good choice of specials. Open kitchen to watch the chefs hard at it. Had the Cumbrian lamb which was delicious.

Waitresses couldn't be nicer or friendlier. One of us is coeliac and they made sure everything was checked by the chef first before ordering. Really good meal highly recommended.

We chose to have a evening meal here as we had visited before. We pre-booked to avoid disappointment on the same day and about 1 hour before we wanted a table.

Walked past this restaurant many times but never considered it as we have other favourites. This place has now been added to our favourites - I had a tomato pasta dish which was delicious. Service was faultless and the waitresses were chatty and friendly. Want to sample the rest of the menu next time.

We turned up on Sunday evening around 9pm. Eventhough It was very busy and a 'closed' sign was on the door, they very kindly let us in and made up a table. We had a lovely evening in a restuarant with a relaxing ambiance where the staff were very attentive and the food was excellent . We loved the food... More
