From the outside you wouldn't think of this as being a restaurant that offered excellent service and amazing food! Have eaten here a few times and I have never been disappointed. The staff are professional but friendly. Lovely atmosphere while dinning. The food is cooked to protection and very tasty. Can be a bit prices but worth every penny.

I enjoyed tempura prawns for starter which were plentiful and delicious, followed by pan-fried monkfish which was impeccably cooked. My choice of desert was sticky toffee pudding which was again delicious. We were the last out... More
