We ate at this restaurant due to TripAdvisor's recommendations. My husband loves Shepherd's Pie and he said this was the best he ever had. It is made with ground lamb and is gluten free. The Clam Chowder was also very good.

The service was great. The portions were enormous. We had the ribeye, chicken fingers and veggie burger. The fried food was non greasy, crispy light and delicious. The vegetables were fresh and cooked al dente. Delicious. Service was fast and friendly!
