had lunch here on Monday 14/11/2016, there were eight in our party and we were served by Maria. Maria was extremely friendly and could not do enough to make our visit enjoyable. We had a variety of meals and all of were happy with our choices. Would be more than happy to return.

The food itself was delicious and well cooked, the price was reasonable as well. What made it for us though was the magic entertainment by Trevor Clien. Trevor goes round the... More
