Thats fine but we realized we were at the back of a queue of non booked walk in customers who were already waiting. We... More

I ordered calamari to start which was very nice and followed it by slow cooked beef which just fell apart. Couldn't fault the food or wine. Plenty of breads, oil, balsamic available on the table. Very warm feel to the restaurant and... More

Having visited this restaurant before, we could not wait to return for a special Birthday meal. However, we were very disappointed. Having booked weeks in advance, we arrive at the restaurant for our meal only to be seated in a cramped table by the servicing till area even though there were plenty of other tables empty. I questioned the staff... More
