Visited here on a Saturday evening for a friends birthday meal as a group of ten. It's a cosy little place with s nice feel X out it .We were served quickly and didn't have to wait long for our food once ordered. The menu is ok, fairly varied with a limited veggie choice. It reminded me of pub grub... More

A pleasant restaurant, clearly popular as people turning up on spec were turned away, but nothing special. Then again, I do not think it is pretending to be. Dishes were well cooked and presented, with nothing to criticise, but nothing to write home about either. Standard food at standard prices, with pleasant service.
