Booked a table for 2 at this busy little place on a Saturday night. Booking is definitely recommended as they were turning people away whilst we were there. Which is a good sign?! We were seated promptly and given menus but we waited a good 10 minutes before a drinks order was taken. And then another 10-15 minutes before we... More

Visited on 18th June for my wife's birthday during our summer holiday but we can still remember how good it was. She had the Sea Bass which was cooked to perfection and said it was fresh and delicious. My main course was very good too (chicken wrapped in bacon with pasta. Anyway when we ordered the deserts and said it... More

The staff were exceedingly warm and welcoming (witty and warm). The food was equally special and despite the varying food preferences of the diners- every dish was spot on! Excellent presentation and taste!

We booked an early table - 6 p.m. - because we were going to the local theatre for an 8 p.m. performance. We arrived slightly early and were shown to a table downstairs with only a few other diners at... More
