We weren't sure what we fancied on Christmas Eve so settled for Indian and we did not regret it. We both went for the banquet option so got to sample a little of everything which filled us up without making us too full for the rest of the evening. Staff very friendly and attentive.

After a huge day on the road it was very nice to stop off and receive a warm welcome and great value food at this restaurant. It deserves its rating and we left full and happy. Kids meals were great and the adult mains menu provided plenty of options. Totally recommend.

Lovely weekend restaurant offering fantastic food at reasonable prices. We discovered the current owners only took over a couple of months ago. If the have started as the mean to go on; they will have a lot of success. Special mention to the chef... the food is tasty and plentiful!
