Didn't know what to expect, my partner stops at the b&b next door while he works away , so I travelled up to castle to see him and thought we would nip in here for tea . Was gorgeous . I had avacardo and prawn starters then fillet steak ameretto style, he had brunchetta and pasta ameretto. Both meals so nice . Would return again

Been here lots of times - always friendly, professional staff and delicious food. Reasonably priced fillet steak with pepper sauce, cooked exactly medium rare as we ask for, the tastiest chips since my mum's and tiramisu are favourites. Can also recommend the potato skins and the canneloni. Friendly buzzing atmosphere and staff who notice that my glass is empty - yesssss!!

We went for Sunday lunch for a friends birthday with a table booking for 2pm. Shown to our table on time and the drinks order was taken. 30 minutes after that our orders were taken for our starter. Waiting for our main course we had to query when this would arrive as they appeared to be serving other tables a great deal quicker. Add to that the staff seemed more bothered about clearing and resetting tables than actually dealing clearing our table and bringing our next course, When it did arrive it was to be fair OK but nothing special.

Last time we were here this place was excellent. This time service was poor and the food was average. Disappointing.

Came here with my boyfriend mid-week.

Accidentally walked into the bar next door before I entered the restaruant - very embarrasing!

Got served very quickly. Soup was lovely, staff were accomodating and let us have minestrone instead of the soup of the day. Pizza was ok and ice cream was nice.

Best part was they had lollypops next to the till when you pay!

Next to a bus stop too so very easy to get to.

One of my grandads favourites in the area so decided to have his 80th party here! There were over 30 of us so very challenging to the staff but they did well

Drinks arrived and ordering was a bit challenging but starters and mains arrived all at the same time and not long a wait, was very impressed.

Food was great but some had a few issues but let them slip due to numbers

One waiter was rather rude when correcting drinks and a guest wanted her pizza to take home and she later came back to say It had been put in the bin...

Overall a great meal and manger was very attentive and friendly
