Hi there, Thank you for your review. I'm really glad that you enjoyed our paella recently, I remember your visit and am still embarrassed at the ciabatta pieces which made it onto your plate.

My boyfriend and I have been here twice through August and we cannot stress enough how good it is. The food is all fresh, portion sizes are generous and the staff are happy to help. If you go with the mixed chicken starter be prepared for the size :) Will be going back!

Don't go if you're hungry as it will take ages to get served. Food when it came was edible but that's about it. Seats were badly stained and the table tops sticky despite the staff cleaning them. Our waitress did her best in trying circumstances.
