Was very friendly staff, food was great. Atmosphere when they brought the birthday cake was fantastic. The staff got every one singing happy birthday. Made it a very special night for my brother in law. Big thanks to all the staff. Would highly recommend.

Two of us ate here during the evening and ate from the fixed price menu. We had the duck leg which was beautifully cooked. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would certainly visit again.
