Four of us had a meal here on a Friday night. I had mistakenly booked for 5 and when they realised this they moved us to a smaller table. We were a little put out as the restaurant wasn't full. However, when we spoke to the manager he advised that two large parties were booked in but didn't turn up!!... More

I booked this for a 'get togeher' for friends and family. The restaurant went to extra efforts to arrange the Christmas menu for our larger group (even though it was not officially available yet), and we recieved a very friendly welcome and a glass of prosecco on arrival. The staff were very friendly and attentive and service was impecable. The... More

Went here because we can walk from our house, but certainly felt it was not outstanding. The portions were quite small although tasty. Sat near where they were cooking and my clothes smelt of fat so will definitely need to be washed and dry cleaned.The wine was very overpriced. I don't think I would return in a hurry, plenty of...

Visited this evening. I am highly allergic to herbs and spices and these people bent over backwards to make me a meal that was tasty and simple! They did not even have advance warning. Absolutely impressed. The food was beautifully cooked considering that the poor chef had a minimal list of ingredients that could be used. The staff are friendly... More

We visited on Saturday evening at 18.30. Quickly shown to a table and given a menu, my wife said she was cold as the rear door to the restaurant was open and a cold breeze was coming in, I asked the waitress if the door could be closed and she went straight away and closed the door, within 5 minutes...

Typical italian. Pizza pasta. Chicken. beef. Fish dishes. Calamari starter slightly overcooked probably due to oil being not quite hot enough Garlic prawn starter. Prawns slightly over done. (Quite shrunken and a bit chewy) Sea bass off the special menu was excellent. Aspargus side was cooked just right. But asparagus a bit stringy probably due to the end of season... More

The place needed some music as it was lifeless and this was at 8:00pm on a Saturday. The food was ok, prawns nice especially the... More
