We plan on returning on a night when... More

Took over an hour for them to even take our order. It was a Saturday night and... More

I have been to this restaurant for many years now and I haven't been disappointed. The staff are very friendly, the service may be a bit slow at times but it only makes for a great night out, you know that once you are seated no one is going to try to rush you out of the door because they... More

However, i was pleasantly surprised, when inside it is very quaint and cosy. The waitress was lovely, letting us choose where to sit and asking if we... More
