When we arrived the restaurant was virtually empty. Our table was reserved outside on the terrace as requested and the bubbly girl looking after the place... More

Lovely clean restaurant with good service. Food excellent with a varied choice. We took our young grandsons for lunch. We had gammon steak which was cooked beautifully and we ordered a childs cheeseburger meal and macaroni cheese. Generous portions and the boys cleared their plates. Couldn't fault the service at all. Very friendly. They have speciality nights which we would... More

We popped in for dinner on a week night and had scallops and calamari to start. Both really tasty. we both had a medium rib eye steak for mains with chips and salad. Really nicely seasoned and delicious tender meat. No room for pudding. Yes I agree it could do with a bit of a refurb - there is ripped... More
