The last few times we have been there is wasn’t great and unfortunately this visit was the same. It really seems to have lost its sparkle. Hopefully the issues can be sorted in time for the summer! Tables were dirty, and staff weren’t very helpful...More

When I first started coming here I didn’t like the fact that it didn’t have table service to take your order. Now I don’t care! The food drinks and service are fantastic! I’m now a regular and absolutely love it!
