We had a Gormet discount card and chose to try it out at this restaurant for my birthday meal. We had 3 courses and a cup of tea. A very reasonable price. The service was very good and we both had a pleasant evening.

The choice is brilliant and the service is the best I've ever had! The lady remembers me every time, and remembers my favourite wine. she makes a big effort... More

What a delightful place! Wonderful friendly waiting staff and owner, sumptuous food and a great ambience. We were spolied for choice with the menu but the waiter had no problem in gently guiding our choices towards dishes that we both thoroughly enjoyed. I wish I lived closer as I think this would be a regular visit for us.
