We had planned to visit earlier in the year, which would have been our second time, the first being some 12 months earlier.

We ate here last night as a large group of young families, and it was just brilliant. The staff were very accommodating, tolerant and attentive, and we had a lovely meal which was great value. Couldn't have been better. Highly recommend!

Been here twice whilst on holiday. The food is lovely, there are daily specials and a good menu. The prices are good for the quality of the food. Will be visiting again.
