A must

Excellent Food, excellent value with service second to none. The owner introduced himself as we left, to ensure our experience was good. That, in itself is a good mark of a very well run establishment.

A regular at this central and friendly restaurant. With a new sound system which can turn DOWN the music at different parts of the restaurant, it is an excellent place for dining and discussion!

Had the most amazing lunch here. Comfortable restaurant and impeccable service. Starter of Scallops and risotto was absolutely superb, the fish and chips to follow were perfect. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant, tucked away just off the Weighbridge in front of the museum. Well worth seeking out you will not be disappointed.
