Good job it wasn't a romantic meal for 2! Order taken. Garlic bread and cheese arrived seconds later ?? Burned to a crisp. Hard.... More

There was a great atmosphere, we had some nice house white wine, looking around most people had pizza/pasta, which all looked lovely, but we opted for chicken dishes, both of... More

For main we had Tagliatelle Carbonara and Chicken Kiev, both very extremely filling and well presented and for desserts we had ice cream from the wide selection of flavours. The service was very good and the food... More

Came here with the family - 8 of us. Service was speedy and the food was excellent for both the starters and the mains. Especially nice were the beef stroganoff and the beef Mexican ragout. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be returning soon.

Once we got a table we waited along time for our orders to be taken, the waiter said a number of times '2 minutes' and continued to... More

I've only ever visited this restaurant a few times in the past & I don't understand why it's so popular. The staff are really friendly, on first name terms with many customers but the food is very basic. Some nice little added extra's would be nice(option of 2 dips & a salad garnish on your potato skins) set menus etc.... More
