Nice food, however not as good as it used to be, dishes are a lot smaller and more expensive (they are still cheap but used to be cheaper) Service was good however had to ask for drinks and the bill several times as the waiter kept disappearing!

Visited this restaurant as we were staying at the Travelodge next door and didn't want to go far for dinner. We were really impressed at the prices and the quality of the food considering.

Awesome deals at this place. Our family went and the food was spot on for the price. The staff were very accommodating even when grandma asked the manager to turn down the music "because I can't hear myself think"! The drinks were ok, though the beers were apparently a bit dodgy. Can't complain at all! Clean and tidy, lovely staff... More

I love sambuccas. While not the best quality food it cannot faulted considering the price. I would particularly recommend going for a birthday when the staff sing to you and you're given a free shot. The only down side is its remote location from the centre of town. But other than that i would throughly recommend this restaurant.
