IF.....this is a genuine review and by the "Dinged" comment you are implying that we microwaved a 1/2 Duck then I can assure you that you are very wrong, care should be taken when placing these reviews as implying our food is not fresh is ridiculous and unfounded. More

We have been to this place a few times and went again for a Birthday Meal. I had the Prawn cocktail to start with and others had the deep fried squid. All starters were a good size and delicious.

Just got back from the 3rd meal I've had here with my girlfriend. Each time has been really good! They have a huge menu which is great!
