We visit Christie's most weekends and if you have never had a meal here I would recommend you try it and I know you will revisit and recommend it to your family and Friends. The staff are friendly and could not make you feel more welcome.

Dropped in and asked for food they were extremely obliging. This staff were very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing, sea bass special was delicious and the home made lasagna was the best, the chocolate pot desert was incredible and all homemade again will definitely be returning.

We visited this restaurant whilst visiting family and the service and food was excellent. The size of the spare ribs were one of the biggest we have had.

However, it was a lovely surprise when the chefs made us our own vegetable chilli -thank you,... More

As the title suggests we had a lovely meal. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The one thing that let the place down was the band that was playing. They were not what I feel was appropriate for the venue.

Popped in on the off chance, a table was sorted immediately with a warm welcome. Professional staff attended to us straight away with a pleasure to serve us. Drinks came quickly as we studied the excellent choice of very reasonable priced food on the menu. Food arrived piping hot and in good time. Drinking water was offered without having to... More
