We came as a family of 4 and couldn't fault anything!! Food was delicious! Staff were so friendly and chatty and always made an effort! The décor is very unique and gives the restaurant a homely feel! Would recommend to anyone and will definitely return!

Clearly very retro, but lovely staff, pleasant environment and a varied Mediterranean menu. Moussaka is made with sliced potato, as aubergines were not available in 1961 and they kept it that way - works really well. Chips great too. May close soon so go now!

Very reasonable priced. Garlic mushrooms were delicious and had chicken a la creme which was tasty but the best bit was the delicious homemade chips. Very good friendly service shame it is closing in the New Year it is one of those places that has been running for 20+ years with the same menu full of favourite classics
