I would say the food is good not great but it's consistently good, you really can go here knowing you'll have a good meal in a nice surrounding.

We all ordered different meals. My fillet steak in a combination of mustard sauces was absolutely fantastic. My little boy had king prawns and loved them. All other family members had a truly memorable experience. Will definitely be back!!

Haven't been here for years, but pleased we decided to give it a try. Can't fault it. Lovely Garlic bread, arrabiata was perfect and chocolate fondant was to die for. Lovely coffee to finish the meal. Would highly recommend
