Lovely place

Booked in for a pre-theatre meal. It was great, the atmosphere is so good. Really friendly staff, great service and delicious food. Ticks all the boxes. Will definitely go again.

Went to this restaurant last week, having been here twice before. Still as good as ever, both of us had steaks and they were beautifully cooked. Will go again given the chance.The owner, host and chef (same person) was as pleasant as ever.

Went here last week, was very quite as it was mid week just us and two other couples. Quite a quirky type of place, but great tasty food. Worth a visit. Food cooked by owner who told us it was his fathers place before him. Could probably get busy at weekends so maybe book if really want to go.

The service was warm and friendly and the food was freshly prepared. Really generous portion sizes - too big for us! I had goats cheeses salad to start and one ring of cheese would have been enough - I received two (but greedily ate both, as it was scrummy!). My husband had a delicious fish stew. For mains, I had... More

Stumbled on this little restaurant by chance one evening. It looked cosy and welcoming so we went in. We managed to get the last table as we hadn't booked. Service was prompt and efficient and the staff friendly and helpful. I missed out on a starter but my partner had a prawn cocktail which he said was lovely. As a... More

This is a great place for Portuguese food. The set menu is only £20 pp with the choice of 3 courses plus coffee. Food is fresh and the waiting staff and manager are excellent. I have been here around 4 times now and have enjoyed each meal. Parties are catered for either down stairs or upstairs. If any of your... More
