Our first visit to this establishment did not impress. There was no welcome upon arrival. None of the waiters smiled all evening and one of them actually made us feel as though we were in his way. As we were driving, we scored to have wine by the glass but there was only a choice of 2 wines that came... More

Food average. Minestrone soup was stock with frozen veg in it - result - flavourless I'm afraid. Salmon in sauce was delicious but carrots and roast potatoes weren't the best accompliment. There were 4 large birthday celebrations so it was overbearingly noisy, cramped and I felt sorry for the individual diners. Unfortunately the waiters were run ragged with the demanding... More

Food was just ok ... but the staff weren't as welcoming as I would expect from a local restaurant ... having said that, the place was busy enough so it must be popular

We were a table of 14 & had a set menu. The food took a long time to come & was so bad that 4 people sent their meals back & had the money removed from the bill. I resent paying restaurant prices when I could have cooked a much better meal at home. Never again

Nice restaurant but very noisy and while you may think this gives atmosphere, it was overbearing! Food was average and I'm sorry to say I believe I may have got food poisoning! Obviously it's hard to pin point but I was very sick for 24hrs afterwards. Staff were attentive but mainly to larger tables! We had to call on several... More

Eleven of us (mixed boys and girls) went for Sunday lunch. First thing to say is that we all got on a large round table. So many restaurants can offer a long table or two pushed together for this number and you have to get up after each course and move around if you want to talk with each other... More

The welcome in this place is fabulous. The staff are very attentive and could not have done more for us. It's family owner and run and the chefs are of a high standard. Excellent wine list and the food was superbly prepared and presented. Really worth a visit - if you can get in nowadays!

Thank Thomas1Ward
