We went for my daughters birthday it was midweek after Christmas but the restaurant was very busy, the staff were very welcoming. There was also a guitarist who played your choice of songs. The value is good for the food as the portions are very generous.

I booked a table the week before and my friend and I dined here last Saturday. On arrival staff were very vague as to my booking... More

We loved this restaurant and booked for my girlfriend's birthday. Initially we were greeted, seated and all was lovely until we finished our main courses. A huge party completely took over the restaurant, shouting, standing on chairs, dancing up and down the length of the restaurant, hitting our table as they went past... Then we were ignored by the staff... More
