We had chicken / chips and fish / chips and both were poor. Over cooked and not great. However the pizzas looked good so perhaps best to stick to them. People around having pizza all had empty plates st the end !

We thought this place was a take away as the sign suggests outside, but it's a restaurant. Well apparently. The service was nothing short of shocking. Staff grunt at you. Snarl. And are extremely rude. Worst so far. If you don't want to work as a waitress, then don't!!! The food was awful. Chicken curry was basically 6 tablespoons of... More

We had pizza which was fine. However on another occasion we ordered chicken and chips and fish and chips, which were both dry and tasteless.

This is the best of the mid range restaurants in the area. The food is good and the portions are hearty. It's a perfectly acceptable option. However beware if the place is packed. It cannot cope with a full house. We waited 90 minutes for our food one evening.

One can get here Italian pizza and pasta dishes on top of other regular "local" food. The prices are the lowest for a Resturant in this area and the quality is at least the same as other more expensive restaurants in the area. Very recommended for families.

Great meals, good service, excellent atmosphere, very entertaining live band (not sure if they're there every day). A group of friends and I regularly go there for birthdays and get togethers, and the staff are always great.
