Yes our Olives are out of a jar and then marinated, where else would they come from ... a tree in the back garden!! All our meals are freshly prepared upon order and our wine list starts at £14.50 for a 75cl bottle.

This local restaurant that has served its visitors for years- seemed as if it was fulfilling its role but the joy, passion, ambience was missing from the whole experience. Food was OK - lacks the Italian freshness & flavours.....

I'm not sure if they do. The menu is extensive though and the staff are really helpful so if you call them they will let you know.
Can you pay by debit or credit cards
