This place is under pressure to reduce costs and the ingredients and portion size has been cut. We used to visit 3/4 time a month but the food is not as good. Staff are very friendly and helpful

Would not have known about this restaurant had I not been taken there by a friend who lives nearby. Out of the town centre in a row of local shops, it’s pretty unassuming from the outside. But the welcome, the service and the amazing food...More
