“Nice food, niceley decorated”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

The restaurant is done out great where you can see the chefs cooking, it's clean and looks very plush.
I ordered lasagne which wasn't huge and was around £8 which I found quite expensive though it was piping hot and tasted great.

“Good Food with great surroundings”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Have had food here a few times and never been dissapointed.The food is well presented and the restaurant is very clean,and you can watch the chefs cooking.The only negative and it's only a small negative,is that the toilets are upstairs,so it's no good for anyone who has trouble getting up a flight of stairs.The staff are very friendly and polite.

“Good value, good service”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Good food and good service make this a nice dining experience. The menu is varied and I would be surprised if anyone could not find something they could enjoy.

“Lovely food, nice interior, but what's the rush?”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Went here last night with my Girlfriend and her Father and Brother, we arrived at 8:30 and were seated promptly the food was delicious. All had something different so a nice selection and no one had anything bad to say about any of the food. I had surf 'n' turf and the steak was cooked perfectly. The only downside was the waitress was hovering to take away the Brothers soup bowl and hardly gave him chance to replace the spoon before whisking it away, although she did say our main was ready so that could be down to eagerness and not wanting the main to go cold. Come around 9:15-9:20 the shutter on the window we were sitting by was shut and a few of the lights were switched off. As soon as our plates were collected and it was ascertained that no one was having dessert of coffee's the bill was placed on the table and the light of the cake stand we were sitting by was switched off. There was nothing subtle about the hint that they wanted you to leave ASAP. Apart from the rushing it was lovely but speaking about it afterwards everyone was a bit unhappy about being rushed so don't know if we would return.

“Excellent meals”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We regularly eat here, Sunday lunches are superb and great value. We have also tasted their evening fare and that's good too with a range of dishes on offer. You really can't go wrong here!

On Saturday nights they even have entertainment!
