Lovely food. Good service. The chairs are to low for the tables. Can be dark at times. Always busy for lunch. Homemade everything can't fault the food.

I would recommend this place for the pizza too, I had it here a couple of months ago. Definitely going here again. Highly recommend it if... More

Great food and relaxed atmosphere for the family. The fish specials, burgers, Cajun chicken and noodles were very good - so good we went back. The beer selection worked very well with the food too.

Dropped in coming home from the RDS Horseshow Ordered the ribeye steak,medium rare, charcoal grilled. It was served surprisingly fast so I expected a nice juicy steak. What I got was more akin to a dry rasher. The steak was pink in the middle, tasted fine but dehydrated so much there was' nt a drop of juice left in it.... More
