Went here for dinner during a business trip. Had one of the daily specials, cod fish and chips with Ms Vickie's Sea Salt and Vinegar chips as the breading. Fish was excellent friend and even the chips had good flavoring. Overall a very good experience.

Booked for 7.30. Got our main course at 9.15. We were told that this was normal as we didn’t order a starter. On the plus side the food was good. We decided not to order desert.

Appetizer was duck confit nachos as recommended by our cab driver. Glad we followed his tip. Amazing taste. Dinner was half rack of lamb done to perfection and enjoyed with a bottle of Pinot Noir. Service was excellent. A little pricey but worth it.
