I went for lunch mid week with a friend who told me about this place. She was not wrong. Loved it. The menu was perfect and spoilt for choice but not because the menu was extensive - jsut because there was so many things I could easily have chosen! There was a lunchtime menu and a Specials and both were... More

Visited on a sunny Monday afternoon and although the restaurant was fairly quiet there was still a nice vibe in the room. The food was well cooked and presented and well worth the money. Service was attentive without being over the top. Wil certainly be back.

I would have given this place the full 5 out of 5 if it weren't for the fact that we always ALWAYS end up with quite a wait at the bar. The staff are really friendly and apologetic but when you're offering (lovely) cocktails and teas and coffees for the bar and restaurant area you need more than 2 bar... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant at the weekend, we haven't been there for a while but the food was still very good. The only negative part of the experience was the service was very slow. Although we didn't complain, it was so refreshing to see that the manager was already aware of the issue and came over to... More

Seriously need to train your staff on customer service skills. Clearly were not wanted in the restaurant - no "Hello/Welcome" and instead, "If you're thinking of eating, it's a 25 minute wait" from a miserable-faced waitress. Second time in the space of a few months I've walked straight out because of the attitude of staff. Disappointing.

We went for a meal with friends and had a good time. The food was lovely, more expensive than I would normally spend but the portions were a good size. The staff were friendly and helpful. A nice night out.
