The food was okay but the cobra beer on tap was off. They would not change it however and still charged for it saying it was fine. It wasn't, I've had cobra loads of times. Unimpressed by customer service and general attitude.

The food and the service was excellent. They catered to my fussy needs...no onions. Good value for the money too. Restaurant was decorated to a very high standard and has a good entrance for disabled customers.
