Been meaning to try here for years. Refreshing to find an eatery with a relaxed ambiance, friendly staff and excellent food. Our steaks melted in the mouth. Will definitely be returning.

We came here for a spot of lunch and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is really nice especially if you sit outside overlooking the canal. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went here for my birthday and thoroughly enjoyed it - good atmosphere, great service and lovely food. Choices of wines was good and at reasonable prices and a good range of beers and spirits. Food was nicely presented and very tasty. Thoroughly recommend it!
