Menu is varied, good to have option of small and large portion on some items. Food was hot and came out quite quickly, chips were especially nice. Lots of tables outside to take advantage of the good weather.

I decided to take my family for a meal based on the reviews on service and food. I can only say by my experience that the service was poor and the gentleman behind the bar was very loathed to sort out a small issue with...More
