We decided to eat here on market day. There was 6of us and we started to move the tables, to immediately be told this is not possible by a rude waitress. Only to see she was moving the tables exactly how we were doing it. We had a breakfast which was OK for the money the staff are blunt and... More

This is a fantastic restaurant. The food is second to none, especially the hot stone fillet steak. The service is brilliant with the waitress (didn't get her name) was very attentive and worked extremely hard.

Love this restaurant as staff always helpful and very friendly does get busy so would never mark down for that. Never let's me down, always opt for more Spanish dishes here followed by a Irish coffee. Love watching them plays boules outside. Always visit here on our holidays.

I... More
