I come here regularly because the food is brilliant, the staff are friendly and helpful they don't mind me bringing my little one! The hummous is the best I've ever had and I adore the grazer board. The burgers are really good though I am yet to finish one as the portions are more than generous!

Everything about this restaurant is just fabulous. The atmosphere, the service, the menu and , of course, the food. It never fails. We're always made to feel most welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Love it.

Our grandchildren had mussels and rib eye steak from the kids menu. Makes a change from the usual fish fingers and burgers. The adult menu was pretty good too.
