Been going there for years and they never disappoint. Whether it’s to eat in or take away the food is faultless.

Not sure about this one. If its a nice day, I would be more tempted to take food out and go across road, sit on bench and take in amazing views. I don't agree with another poster who said area slightly rough as I have been... More
