A big group of us go there 4 times a year at least and have always had good food. Service can be a bit in consistent at busy times but if you there socially and in no rush it's not a big deal.

The only thing good was the food...... The customer service was non-existent. Not one customer was greeted with a good evening, or even a smile. In fact several people who had pre-booked a table were told to come back later as there was no table available..... What a shame as we'd been told how good this restaurant was. We won't... More
