This was our first visit to Basil's but won't be our last. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and welcoming. The place itself is clean and well set out, it also has an open kitchen. I highly recommend a visit.

We regularly eat at Basil's. ..the mid week menu is excellent value for money and always get service with a smile. Mr Butterworth and his staff are always happy to accommodate and it is always a pleasure to visit.
