Usually a good meal here. Service good. Lots of choice and tasty food. Frequent wait on arrival even when table booked. Hostess sometimes a little sharp.

We decided to go out for sunday lunch, last minute. We were grateful to be seated. Table took a while to be cleaned, food was a short wait and the food was average. They were busy though. Wouldnt rush to go back

We go here at least once a week as a family food always good and deserts, staff good even though sometimes you seem to have to wait ages for your drinks to get to your table when you have ordered them,you have to book a table as always busy.
