Funky and Friendly. Cheap and Cheerful meals. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent food and service at great prices. Massive central fire for the winter months, and an amazing rooftop terrace for the summer months or just to get some fresh air. Going strong for over 18 years with the same owner, so we must be doing something right! Large refit and refresher in June 2015 guarantees that we are keeping on top of our game!
