We've been here a few times and have never been disappointed. There's plenty on the plates for hungry teenagers, a great selection for all and no over the top fussiness.

First time visitor, but will return. Loved the Caps on the ceiling, cool idea. Food was amazing and service on the ball. I am vegetarian and there was 4 options so I was impressed with that. No room in the bar afterwards so we sat outside for half an hour to enjoy the view. Would recommend.

YUM! We loved this place so much, we went 3 times in 1 week. The staff were fun and friendly and great with our 2 year old daughter. The food was DELICIOUS and while a bit more expensive than we would pay at home, worth every penny. No trip to the area is complete without a visit to this delightful... More

Booked table here for three people on a quiet, cold Monday night. The fire was lighting, only a few people eating but lovely relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and service was excellent. The menu is extensive with a wealth of choices and everything was prepared to perfection. Really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere and would definitely recommend a visit.... More

We wanted to book a meal , and a night's stay, This would have involved booking two single, and three double rooms for the night. The person who took the call was extremely unhelpful, and rude. The rates he quoted were not the rates advertised, as he... More
