My wife, son and I had our evening meal here as we do from time to time. It was a Saturday night and it was very busy, however, service was first class from the outset.

It's been many years since I was in this place and boy has it changed. Great selection of beers. Food was excellent; big portion sizes, but a doggy bag was provided. My only criticism would be more scallions in the champ please. Top marks.

We had a great meal here on New Years eve. The staff were all so friendly, even though they were under pressure on one of their busiest nights of the year I imagine. It's easy for the service to slip on these sorts of evenings but my wife and I came away feeling that the service was special. Happy New... More

Called in for a quick lunch before Christmas. Fast and friendly service, good quality food and pleasant atmosphere. Real cotton napkins were a nice touch. Will be back.
