They fitted us in on Saturday night and really looked after us. Food and drink were excellent and the staff work really hard to make sure you have a good evening. Highly recommended.

My friend had her 40th here. There was a nice gang of us and we were seat upstairs. Staff were very patient and friendly. I got the steak and it was fab. We had a set menu and the price was very reasonable.
