We have been here many times before and called again for a meal on Friday 15th August. We went early and were eating from the set menu which is £12.99 for 3 courses. The courses are smaller than the ones you would get on the main menu. I had the meatball starter and my wife had the olives as we... More

Five of us ate here on Saturday night. The atmosphere was very good, the singer was excellent and the staff were attentive. The food was very good, two of our party had the calamari to start and said it was fantastic. No complaints - except perhaps that the set menu isn't available on a Saturday night which made our evening... More

The service was good, I liked the singer and the atmosphere is also good. However, although my mixed kebab was very good it was pricey and my other half's moussaka was more like bolognese (which it really isn't suppposed to be!) Everything was edible but not brilliant. I have had four meals here and had two good, two average. Could... More
