Have been to the restaurant several times. Nice menu with extensive wine list. Service has always been friendly and efficient, although speed of service lacked on the odd occasion. Steaks have always been cooked to order, unlike other restaurants where one needs to order "rare"...More

Great food. Great service. Always the same quality. A place to go if you want value for money. Can recommend the restaurant if you want good food or if you want to have a drink and a snack in their bar lounge.
