4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile

After two meals with 3 adults and a 10 year old, can fairly say that the food quality and portions are very good. We have had soups, anti-pasta, wings, Chn tenders, salads and desserts. Danny and Karen in the bar were very helpful each nights well as the other 4 staff members whose names I can't recall.

Great selection of food and wine/beer, friendly and helpful staff. Was never overly crowded although the tables laid out for 4 were a bit squishy!

This is a great spot for a very nice lunch or dinner. The portions are very generous and the service is great. There was a misunderstanding (on our part) with one of our orders and they took care of it without a hassle or extra charge. The signature cocktails are excellent.

It wasn't great but it was good eating, however the servers were some of the rudest people i have ever encountered. They could care less about the people they are serving or at least my husband and I. The locals we met however were very kind and fun.

The restaurant is in a castle how cool is that! Our service was good. There was a mistake in our order and it was quickly resolved. We both had sandwiches which were huge and vey filling. The environment was clean and well decorated.
