“Don't expect too much!”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

This restaurant was recommended as somewhere "special" to celebrate our wedding anniversary and was a total let down.

I can't remember what we ate, not awful, but certainly not memorable, special or worth the money.

We waited an hour and half between our starter and main, and got no apology when we queried the delay well after an hour of waiting, and we were not the only ones getting restless.

The answer we were given was "everything is cooked fresh". I think they need to visit some of the excellent restaurants they have locally to understand freshness and delay don't need to go together.

Needless to say, we did not have a dessert, we were just glad to get numb bums off the hard chairs and out of there!
