Despite being fairly familiar with the area we struggled to find the restaurant which is located next to a motorway within a housing estate. We arrived a little late but this was not a problem at all and we were warmly welcomed by the friendly waitress. The pre-theatre deal was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed all three courses and the very drinkable house wine. My partner's pork belly was particularly tasty, but really we couldn't find fault with any of the food, other than that the portions were maybe on the small-side. The decor is cosy and charming and feels very traditional. All in all a lovely meal.

A bit hard to find but very close to the westend and town. Great food and wonderful service by the head waiter Douglas. Good value pre theatre menu which seems to be available most of the time 3 courses inc 0.5 bottle of wine for £16.95.
Nice tasty food, good choice and good veg cooked to perfection, nothing mushy here!
Enjoy!

I have visited this restaurant twice in the last couple of months pre theatre and found the food and the service very good. The service was excellent and the staff friendly. The early evening menu is great value. The atmosphere is very good too.

Don't be put off by the location or the fact that this restaurant is out of the way. From the minute we walked in, to the time that we left, we were made to feel special and very welcome. The host could not have done a better job.

The seafood chowder for starter was probably the nicest I have ever tasted. The main courses (Chicken Supreme for me and and salmon fillet for my wife) were cooked to perfection as were the delicious vegetables.

This is a real good value for money restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. We will certainly eat here again - places as good as this are hard to find!!.

went in on a friends recommendation, and they were not wrong. although it was quiet, many places are on tuesdays nights, it was still a lovely atmosphere- nice lighting and cosy, the weather outside was horrendous. the friendly waiter took our coats and sat us at a lovely table in a kind of booth, with shelves of knick-knocks behind us, very quaint and added to the feel of the place, like you were in your grandmothers living room. then we were presented with a conundrum:what to choose from the menu? everything sounded so tempting. i opted for the goats cheese tart and my friend had the special, deep fried haddock with tartare sauce both were enjoyed immensly as was the complimentry freshly baked bread. for mains i had the fillet burger and my friend had the pork belly and mash. both went down a treat and the chips were some of the best i have had. we were a bit full for dessert so shared a sticky gingerbread pudding which did defeat us, next i shall save room. we had a nice sauv blanc to drink and was such good value, the whole meal was. the service was polite and friendly with extra touches like filling up our water and giving some history of the place an added bonus, which u rarely get when paying so little... our bill was less than £20 each including drinks, unbeatable.
