We went here because we did not want pub food again. We were in for some good pizza and decided to go here as it was one of the best on Tripadvisor.

The food was excellent - good flavour and portion size. The waitress was run off her feet but got to us before it was too long. A good solid restaurant for price.

Friendly staff, reasonably priced. A bit chilly, dark. Lighter decor would do a lot to give a sense of welcome. We would come back with friends!

I recently visited this restaurant and found that the food was excellent, place setting was nice and clean . The down side was that the service was slow due to the lack of floor staff on.

The food was good and the wine was Santa Rita 120, so a nice bottle considering the price. My husband started with the goats cheese, nice... More
