I looked on trip advisor and went with... read more

Booked a table via phone for 4 people for 25th July. I asked if there was caberet on this night and was told yes there was. But when we arrived at the table we asked about the caberet menu and was told by the waitress that caberet night was on the last Saturday of the month. We pointed out that... More

Visited in a large group this week - the service was fab - no long waits and the food was delicious! There were other large groups in at the same time but staff maintained a calm atmosphere and didn't appear stressed or 'run off their feet' - very well organised! Will visit again!

Booked in for eight pm....very quick service....a little cramped. Very noisy...but genuine atmosphere. We were on our anniversary...table for two....surrounded by parties and kiddies. No problem...food was satisfying and delicious...steak cooked to accurate level. One small suggestion...request more info on the phone...maybe have big parties at the bottom of the building and quieter smaller parties at the front. Allocate the... More

Great Mediterranean / British cuisine in a busy, but friendly bistro. Well worth a try. Can get noisy and very busy at the weekend, but if you enjoy great food in a happy chatty environment then this is the place for you. It's not a quiet secluded romantic atmosphere but great food and company make up for it. Well worth... More

Enjoyed the food and drink the service was quick and the place looks fantastic the only problem was one of the waitresses was a bit rude when one of the people I was with asked I'd chips came with her meal. Other than that everything was great.

We visited this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal recommended by my son's friends dad and a very good recommendation it was! Located just a few minutes out of the town centre, it even had free parking across the road after 5pm. It was a very hot day in the 30's, so the first thing when we entered this unassuming restaurant... More
