I was at the resturant for dinner on Saturday night and from the start it was great, great selection for the vegetarians in our group and for the meat eaters they enjoyed the burgers. It was very busy on Saturday night but that isn't reflect on the service, as always a great night!

Claire Breen took on board all our requirements for table layout, decoration and colour scheme, we also had several guests with specific dietary requirements.

I visited last night and was met by a delightful young lady. Asked if I had a booking? I declined and she said "no problem", showed me to a table, took our drinks order and left menus. As a steak fanatic, I decided to try the burger with all the extras. Waohhhh! The plate came piled high and am glad... More

Ava....i love you and the staff but please please please loose the Asda pepper mill. Nothing wrong with Asda at all but I really don't want to see it in a restaurant. Makes me wonder what else is from there :(.

Called in here on way to an afternoon movie matinee with my mum. Advised waiter that we were under time restraints and starters came quickly. Lunch special included turkey and ham with all the trimmings on a huge plate ... Absolutely yummy. Would definitely recommend.

Called in with wife and 3 kids in tow in a Friday teatime. Good value 2 course special and a good choice of kids meals were on offer. A nice touch was a large jug of juice for the kids quickly brought to the table without asking. Nice food, good portion size and good service. Would recommend.
