Went for a late afternoon meal, lovely meal and good portions! Service a little slow - however there was only waitress working the whole time we were in there and could see she was struggling to juggle multiple tables by herself. Very reasonable!

22 of us booked for New Years Eve. we were asked if we could pre-order and arrive early as they had a party of 40 upstairs at 8pm. We arrived at 7pm. By 8pm we had to ask what the delay was, we were told once they have sorted the large party out they would serve us. This really wasn't... More

The place was empty on arrival but nearly fully booked but they had time and space for us and were very accommodating. service was fantastic and they were serving with many staff. The drinks and food were served very quickly, I had a chimichanga (my favourite) and my other half had pulled pork nachos and they were very large platefuls... More

I have visited this restaurant many times with friends and family and cannot say a bad word about the place. The food is lovely and great value for money. The staff are friendly and attentive, even at extremely busy times and the atmosphere is always welcoming. I am visiting again for New Year's Eve and I know we'll be looked... More

Popped in for a later afternoon lunch with my grandparents and mum. There was no consistency in the service. Each time we wanted anything we had to go up to the bar. There were only two tables in there so busy was not an excuse. I think we had been there about 40 mins before we went to order our... More

10 years in the town, several spent walking by this place thinking "that's probably not for me". I wish I had been more opened minded, as a post-boxing day lunch here, with my other half, was absolutely delightful. They have a lovely, authentic atmosphere, background music which stays in the background, and very comfortable seating. I went simple and stuck... More
