We visit here once or twice each week. The owners and regulars are all really lovely friendly people. We have tried everything on the menu and all the food is amazing. The meals are full of flavour every time. Always give 110% .

The food tasted nice and came in good portion sizes. However, some meals were quite expensive and were too big to finish. Maybe they could reduce meal price and size for certain meals like the dragon burger. Although, a nice place to eat.

As far as we could see there were only two members of staff serving meals and drinks. Obviously a popular place to eat as appeared to be quite busy, the food... More

Had a meal at this restaurant whist stopping at a local hotel. We booked for a Saturday night and on arrival was seated in a very busy area of the restaurant. The meal was vey nice and nicely cooked. Would recommend booking.
