Excellent food, great service and good value for money. Went as a family of four, chose the set menu and there was more than enough food for the four of us. Often have take-aways from here but will most definitely return for a family meal in the restaurant.

The decor is clean and modern with the main restaurant area suitably lit for conversation and relaxed dining. The waiter was welcoming and professional, as was the service from all waiting staff throughout the evening. We opted... More

I attended this restaurant with a group of 11 other ladies, one of whom was wheelchair bound. The manager did not want her to sit at the table already set for 14 people. His excuse was that a party of this size would need two tables. So why set the table for 14 in the first place. There were only... More

Our table had been set with 14 settings and chairs but when a wheelchair came in to the equation, it was no longer an option to sit together, even though the party was... More

We, a party of 14 ladies on a craft retreat weekend, had booked for an early meal today at 6pm. I arrived a little later to find our party in total confusion. Our table had been set for 14, but the manager saw that one of our party was in a wheel chair, he then said that she could not... More
