I said i would never go there again a couple of years ago but made the mistake of going again. The only nice thing about the place is the friendliness of the waiters/waitresses. I... More

Staying in the hotel next door we came here for breakfast 2 days in a row, we liked it that much the first day, and the Bloody Mary's were delicious. Both days there was only us and one other table in, which surprised me because the food was delicious, the service was fantastic & friendly, and very reasonable prices too!... More

The title says it all! This restaurant was recommended to me and it didn't disappoint. We pre-booked for Saturday lunch and were greeted and dealt with swiftly, by friendly staff. The venue is very stylish and very clean. The food was delicious too!! we will be back x

We love this place, the staff are so good & friendly. Even if we haven't booked & they are really busy they will find us a table. The food is very good & have never had any problems & we eat here at least once a week.
