(£12.95 for 2 courses and £15.95 for 3 courses.) The variety of food to select from was good although the portioning of vegetables left something... More

Ive been visiting this resturant with my wife for many years and have yet to be disappointed. The food is consistantly good and the service is always excellent. The menu choice is varied but flexible if necessary. Always a good choice.

I know it was a Sat night but the music was so loud you couldnt hear the person sat next to you unless they shouted. That along with the "happy birthday"... More

Sunday lunch for three (about 1pm)... We've waited for our meal for approx. 35-40 minutes (with no apologies). The couple who arrived after us got theirs within 10-15 minutes. We have ordered additional drinks but empty plates were not cleared when drinks arrived - we had to put them on one side ourselves. Disappointing. For the dessert we ordered one... More

lovely place to eat and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We've eaten here twice in two months and both meals have been delicious. We can't wait to go back again and try another dish. The service was quick although it was a busy saturday night. can't recommend this place enough!!!! Our new favourite place to eat.
