The Mac n cheese is great. Fabulous variety of specials albeit some a bit too fancy and complicated. The restaurant isn't licensed so take your own bottle if you fancy! Staff are lovely.

Would recommend ordering from the specials menu. Food is great and portion sizes are good. The menu isn't updated on the website very often but it gives an idea. Staff always helpful...oh, and its BYOB.

Popped in around 4pm for a late lunch with my wife. Both had the special of Thai Beef Sandwiches. Was very tasty and the handmade skin on fries were perfect on the side. Would definitely return.

We have been there twice recently. First time I had a breakfast which was a bit on the greasy side, I should known better as the place was smelling badly of stale cooking oil and the kitchen extractor fan was obviously poor.

We were seated and then left for quite some time without anyone taking even a drinks order. When the food arrived it was good, but a... More

Visited here for dinner with my partner and it was amazing! A little wait on the food which is expected as its freshly made, definitely worth the wait if you want some real food! Would really recommend it and we will definitely be back! A lot of choice on the menu as well! Staff are also lovely

I ordered the chowder to start and it was far too salty. I know fish dishes especially chowder can have a salty kick but this was just ridiculous.
