Starter was ok although they didn't have first 2 things we asked for. Mains were meat dishes but mostly packed with sloppy veg. Found a hair in one of the mains so they took it off the bill, had no intention to pay for something...More

I've been here several times now. It always seems to be open when everywhere else is closed, which is a real bonus on a quiet night. It is like walking back into an eclectic mix of 70's and 80's decor but thats no bad thing...More

Booked for a Friday night hoping that it would be as good as it had been in the past. It was! Lots of good westernised dishes as well as some lovely authentic dishes if you search the menu. A small restaurant and on the night...More

A definite 'don't judge a book by its cover'. Uninspiring entrance and very dated décor. Not a very big place so one lady was covering order taking, bar services and waitressing and was not the most engaging of individuals. However the food was pretty damn...More
