Went for dinner on a Saturday and had a very pleasant evening. Staff are very friendly and the food is really nice. There's a nice atmosphere and we ended up staying the whole evening. Would definitely recommend.

Thanks for fitting me in when they were very busy and I didn't have a reservation. Good food served promptly which suited my schedule and theirs.

Four of us visited this fabulous restaurant last Saturday - not a lot to say except the food was superb - there was no problem to making slight changes to dishes ordered - and very friendly service. A cracking evening. The restaurant was full -...More
