Nice place!!

Very good experience overall. Starters were superb and although my wife's main was incorrect it was very tasty. It's very nearly a five star to be honest it just fell slightly short. The service was excellent to boot. Highly recommended

We visited this restaurant because we had heard it was a good place to eat, well I am sorry to say we were very disappointed, the staff make you feel as though they really cannot be bothered.

Just been for the first time with 3 friends for New Years Eve. Lovely food. Excellent service from friendly staff. The singer had a wide range of songs and a great voice.
