I have been using this restaurant for some 12 years, it's a lovely cozy place to eat, enjoy good food, cold beer and watch the world go by. They always go out of their way if you have a child with you. First class.

We have not eaten in the restaurant itself yet, but we have ordered several takeaways after a recommendation by a friend. Everything we have tried has been so delicious and delivered at or before the time specified.

We popped in late on a Saturday night and the food and service were excellent. We were the only ones there, but they didn't rush us and we finished our lovely food with Indian ice cream and Irish coffees!
