As a student you can get a meal deal type thing for 4quid which is pretty good and you actually get a lot for your money's worth. You must call up though. Food is great and like I said you get loads and a bag of prawn crackers! Service is good and food cooked fresh.

Absolutely awful. It doesn't help to have staff sneeze into the hand they then put your plate down with. Nor is it welcome to see staff reposition doormats then (without washing hands) serving drinks.

This restaurant serves consistently high quality food and service at a reasonable price. We've been using them for years and as a family run business the consistency is second to none. I highly recommend them for both an intimate dinner for two or a group booking. Recently visited as a party of 10 and the order was correct, the food... More

I don't think we have ever had a bad meal here! I've always really liked the duck in orange but all their food is great! The staff can seem a little stand-offish but are really attentive. Nothing really to complain about. A must go! The outside looks really rubbish but don't let it turn you off.

From the outside, the restaurant is somewhat uninspiring, looking more like the offices of an insurance broker! Inside, it's a bit tired but the food and service more than makes up for this. The menu is extensive with all the usual favourites on offer and reasonably priced. Orders are taken promptly and meals delivered in good time. The food was... More

We have been coming here for many years. Mostly these days it is for a take-away as our grandchildren aren't ready for restaurants, but sometimes we come as a couple for a meal and the food is excellent. I have taken visitors from Italy and India here and they have all enjoyed the experience

We went for a birthday meal and to our horror we found a dead insect in our meal, when I told the staff they said it was a bean sprout but on inspecting it was a dragonfly !!!!
