Three of us promptly seated near to the bar did suggest a table in a quieter part but wasn't available even though we could see vacated tables. Then we waited for our order to be taken and we did, our thoughts were we had been forgotten. Order was taken after prompting and our food arrived swiftly and was very good.... More

Visited on Thursday evening (6th Aug) arrived at 6:30pm. There were 8 of us (4 adults/4 children). We were seated quickly and drinks order taken. There was an offer of 2 main meals for £10 (from a selected menu). The food was excellent, delicious and well cooked, good portion sizes and it all came out together and hot! Well done!... More

This was an impromptu visit as it is local to us. Although the restaurant was busy, we were quickly found a table. There is plenty of choice on the menu, plus specials for all 3 courses. The service was very good, prompt and polite. The meals were also very good and reasonably priced.
