Popped in for lunch and was not disappointed. My wife ate from the specials menu which is great value and included a desert and i ate from the other very extensive menu. Although very busy the food arrived in good time with great presentation but more importantly tasted excellent. The staff were very attentive and courteous.

Very young and not very competent staff, with no-one evidently in charge. Food mediocre. Have been to the two other restuarants in Hillsborough and this is undoubtedly the poor relation at present. Much prefer the Parson's nose, for better service, better ambiance, better quality and a better all round dining experience.

Parking area through the archway, bistro area quite roomy, good food at reasonable prices - we pop in occasionally when out that way

went for their two course lunch for a tenner which is really good value , the meals came out looked superb but on tucking into mine i found a great big hair , i called the manager over and showed her the hair, she swiftly took the plate away and offered coffee with my desert which was part of the 2 course which was fine only thing was i was starving . in hindsight i should have said i want to choose from the menu again but wasnt given the chance too. this experience would not put me off returning. the desert of creme brulee was excellent .
