Wow! I had been here previously years ago - I had an average meal and never had an inclination to go back. This time it was my grandmas 88th birthday so a special one recently; we need a large table and they gave us the upper room to ourselves. Service from the start was extremely good; helpful, very polite. Food... More

Went during the week. Quite a few people in considering mid week. Nice friendly staff. Very good food. Would have liked a better selection of deserts, but everything we had was really good. Would go again!

Been visiting for the last four years regularly. Food is consistently good. Yes it's not fine dining, yes it can be very quiet some nights, yes when it has large parties in it can be noisy, is the same not true of any restaurant. The negative reviews mostly appear to be reviewing a nearby takeaway (Primo) I don't believe the... More

Was greeted by a very authentic chap which was great and he remained very polite and attentive most of the evening. Food was fab although some of us felt the food was rather rich. Prices were really reasonable... More

Been here many times and I can take or leave it usually. However, a party of 15 of us went the week before Christmas and the service and food were both fantastic. They cooked something for me that was not on the menu - fabulous when considering how busy they were. The service was impeccable, especially the hilarious waiter who... More
