nice food well presented and reasonably priced. Most of the staff happy and friendly but one girl clearly didn't seem to want to be there!

Have been coming to this restaurant for the last two years and have always enjoyed our meals which are good value. The menu gives plenty of choice and sizzlers are a good addition this year. The staff are very friendly & always give customers a warm welcome.
