Nicely decorated bar. We just went for drinks rather than food. Decent selection of drinks and i think the price is ok. Found the staff a tad cocky and the guy behind the bar with the beard a bit rude. Good rum selection

We decided to visit this restaurant based on the reviews here but almost changed our minds when we first arrived. The sign advertising the restaurant (when we finally saw it) looked dated and the entrance looked like we were heading into a club but we...More

We generally drink G&T but have had the Rose which was very nice - my daughters have also tried the red wine, but as the standard is very high, I would imagine it would be good. Try giving them a call and they might let you... More
