“Dirty.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The food was okay but by no means good. We were very put off by the large, dirty cobwebs hanging over and beside our table, the grey and stained net curtains, the bits on the carpet, the peeling paintwork and the dirty marks on the walls. The restaurant needs a thorough clean and would then benefit from redecoration..

A very damp smelling dining room. Left quicker than we arrived. No aroma of food being cooked, actually no diners full stop
