There a few of us dining, the food was lovely however, not as good as previous times. It was a very busy evening in the restaurant so maybe this was the reason.

Atmosphere, service and food was top notch and both me and my wife were very impressed. Don't think it will be too long before our next... More

We booked in advance, which were were really glad about, as people were being turned away when we arrived for our 7.45 slot. We chose to eat from the 'early bird' menu, and thought the food was good value at £18.95 for three courses. All three courses were good-sized portions of well-cooked and presented food, and the waiting staff were... More
