The service was good and friendly and the food was very good again. There is a good range of specials but none of the family were disappointed with the variety on the menu.

Was thinking of booking for... More

I recently had lunch here and was very impressed by the service. The staff knew the menu very well and were more than happy to help with any queries. The menu was varied and the food was delicious. I'll be back to sample the cocktails soon.

In a nutshell.... The staff need to given a lesson on customer service. Extremely poor reception. No one's better than anyone else in my opinion, and then to hear staff calling customers. Not on. Won't be going again.
