As we had a late lunch we weren't that hungry but we were delighted that they offered started size portions for main courses.

Went here on a Friday at 6pm and it was busy for the duration of the meal. I would advise booking ahead as there were limited tables available when I walked in. Had chicken wings to share to start and they were very tasty. The desserts were also very nice and the strawberry pavlova sundae was huge.

The friendliest restaurant around. Wonderful greeting every time we visit. Food is excellent and good value for money. A little tucked out of the way behind the pharmacy on the main street but well worth taking the extra effort to find.

Interesting starters including good soup. Pizza base is thin and crispy. Pasta mains are all available in starter sizes which you can have as a starter or a main. This is great because then you are able to have a starter and dessert without feeling you've overeaten! Service is excellent and staff are patient and helpful. The atmosphere tends to... More
