Although we ( my husband and I) live nearby, this is the first time we have eaten in this little gem and we were certainly not disappointed. We had bought groupon deal some time back and decided to book for a midweek meal, not really expecting much! Although it was a Wednesday night and the bar and restaurant were fairly... More

we went here on a groupon deal at Halloween. Food was excellent - we all ordered the same : chilli prawns followed by steak with blue cheese sauce on the side with patatas bravas. Everything spot on except for the patatas bravas sauce - tasted a bit like the tomato sauce from the tinned spaghetti of my childhood. To be... More

We went there through a voucher we had bought online for mussels and steak. The food itself was lovely. However, here are my main gripes with the place.........I don't like dirty glasses and cutlery. I don't like choices tableware and I don't like staff rolling their eyes when you ask for replacements.
