A good place to eat if you like you plate piled with food. Bar service really bad, we were refused drinks as another group, not with us, were drunk. Waited so long for their courtesy coach we ended up calling a taxi.

We took friends here and had an excellent meal. The atmosphere was very pleasant, casual, but not a bar environment. We were able to talk and have nice dinner conversation. Service was prompt and efficient. Can't think of any negatives. Would definitely recommend and go back.

Positives - courtesy van is handy given that they are so far out; nice decor and ambience.

Negatives - just absolutely terrible service. A waitress that basically ignored us the entire night, making us ask for everything (e.g. Do you think we could order some dessert? Bill?). Food was mediocre for one, and absolutely awful for the other - yes, you should be suspicious given the size of the menu. And the pricing would have only been fair if accompanied by better service and edible food!

Must try harder - D-. Stay in town for better options, eats and value.

An excellent meal in this busy and popular restaurant. Service was prompt, the menu extensive and the portions were more than adequate. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. This restaurant has a pub atmosphere, it is busy and booking would be advisable.
