We came here as a family for a late Mother’s Day gift on recommendation from a few more local friends. Although google maps took us quite well out of the way of the restaurant, and it is easier to get there using your own initiative...More

They don’t have a function room but there is a very large bar area which could probably be reserved. They extend into this at really busy times. Worth giving them a call to double check. Hope this helps.
