Very happy to accommodate despite booking only an hour before. Each one of our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal, the waitress was also very pleasant and efficient. Excellent restaurant.

“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I haven't eaten here for years with living away. But so glad to be back in the area that serves excellent and well presented meals. One of the waitresses AMY was marvellous, so smiley and couldn't do enough for us, she was very attentive and checked back on us several times throughout the evening, asking if she could get us more drinks. her attention to detail was great.
We will definetly be going back, to sample more on the menu. I hope the service is just as good.

“Won't return any time soon”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

After a trip out we wanted a quick bite to eat and everytime I have been in the past it has been wonderful. Not too sure what has happened! We walked in to men sat at the bar (looked quite scruffy) watching cricket news and talking rather loud but as the restaurant is round the back of the bar we decided to stay. We were asked to wait in the bar area given drinks and menus as a table wasnt ready even though there were only 2 tables being used in the entire place. Out order was taken in the bar area. After 15mins we were taken to our table and our food was brought out 30seconds later. Our chips were under cooked the panini was stale and steak was extremely tough.
At no point were we asked how our meals were (albeit they were only sandwiches, but still) we wasn't even thanked and had to try and get their attention if wee needed anything ... Overall a pretty disappointing visit to a what used to be a brilliant restaurant.

“Try the steak sandwich- its amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

I've visited twice for lunch in the past month and both times it has been simply wonderful. The waitresses are as sweet as can be and the menu its extremely reasonably priced. The steak baguette it wonderful, with not an ounce of fatty grissle on it I can honestly say it was perfect, lovely handcut chips and a cute salad garnish, priced at 480 its an absolute bargain.

“Excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

The fillet steak was simply perfect, says my cordon blue chef friend. The duck was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble. The atmosphere was relaxed. There was no pushing which we enjoyed. Very good value for money. The service from efficient waitresses could not be faulted. Superb situation and views. Sadly there was no apple pie this evening. Would recommend this restaurant any time.
