Love this place for lunch. Food very fresh and portions generous. They have a cold salad area or a hot food area - and both are excellent. Staff great especially the salad bar ladies ! Highly recommend.

Ate here with my family, really disappointed with the quality of the food, to make it worse the manager didn't want to know when we complained or he just didn't know how to deal with it..... Very unprofessional

Good quality food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Caesar salad was delicious and the sirloin steak was excellent. I like to eat there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Kids eat free in August (only one child per table I think though but that suited us). Good choice of food, served promptly and hot. We had a mixture of things - calamari, bruschetta and veg soup were tasty. Mussels were in a chilli sauce which was so hot it was like a chilli soup... More
