Pleasant dining

The food is mainly English themed as the owners are English but a very pleasant restaurant and quite reasonably priced

We were in here about the same time last year and it was wonderful, great food and ample helpings. Having just returned we were very disappointed. Don't get me wrong the service was excellent. But the food was poor, very bland and an inedible curry. Portions were well down, which can be no bad thing but sadly so was the... More

Highly recommended, 14.95 euros for 3 course meal including 1/2 bottle of wine each. Starters 20 choices Main course 21 choices and many desserts. Food is piping hot, excellent staff. The advantage of 1/2 bottle of wine each is that if one of you drink red and the other prefers Rose or white then you can each have your own... More

You should book this restaurant before going as it is always busy. Only open nights and you can spend a good few hours here lingering and making friends. Caroline and staff are excellent hosts who treat you like long lost friends every time you go. Made many other friends here as well as the atmosphere is so convivial.

The food was nice, but we just did not feel welcome in there. The staff talked to us, but didn't chat beyond what they needed to say. The other... More
