This is our favourite local restaurant. We have been using it since it opened. the portions are not over large, so we always manage three courses. Our last visit was on the 22nd July and it didn't disappoint.

Visited this restaurant for lunch on a recent trip to Brentwood. Located well away from the town centre it is definitely a restaurant rather than pub. The menu offers a good selection of cuisine ranging from Cajun chicken to pasta or rib eye steak. All meals were well cooked and tasty and they were able to advise on gluten free... More

We've been eating here for around a year now and we haven't had a bad meal or experience here. Every visit is pleasant and the staff are all so friendly. For the price you pay, you couldn't want any more. Very good quality for the price.

We had a Sunday lunch here recently and I must admit I was very pleasantly surprised with the experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was equally lovely. We will definitely be making a trip back here in the not too distant future.

We enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch in this fully booked restaurant. Service from friendly and welcoming staff. Well cooked Sunday lunch favourites with all the trimmings. Great fish dishes too with tasty Mediterranean vegetables. Creamy desserts. Well worth a return visit but book ahead.

I visited this restaurant with relatives - mid week for lunch. The car park was almost full and so was the restaurant. This is a good sign are diners are becoming a lot more choosy and want good food at a reasonable price.The fixed lunch menu's are good value. Two courses £12.95 or three courses £16 95. They both offer... More

We used to visit this place quite frequently but the menu was always the same apart from two or three specials which were normally the most expensive! Decided to try it out again as the quality of the food was always excellent. We were pleased to see some new dishes on the menu and had a very good meal with... More
