Good choice of food on the menu and excellent service from all the staff. Our food was well presented and tasty, salad garnish is a meal in itself. Home made cheese cake was awesome !

The food was good and reasonably priced. The live music was a welcome change. The restaurant was busy but we experienced no delay and all was good. Staff were very hospitable and friendly.

We visited a while ago now but I must share this review however I cannot simply get everything into this review on how bad it was. We went for a friends birthday, a good group of us. We waited and got the nibbles and drinks which seemed nice. A few of us took the owners recommendation of the chicken kebab... More

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

A spur of the moment decision to go out to eat. Hadn't been here before, so rang, booked and off we went. Not very busy but were immediately made to feel welcome. No rush, no panic, given plenty of time to make drink and food choices. All 4 of us went for the set menu. no complaints at all. food... 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
