Decided to try this after the original restaurant we booked was forced to cancel our booking due to water mains issues, but weren’t disappointed at the alternative. Had a really nice table in the centre of the restaurant and the Ravioli special was top notch....More

We ate here as a family of 4 for supper. Both the kids had pizza which they enjoyed. The pasts special and the lasagne were both delicious. Service was swift and attentive, the surroundings were bright and airy. I would definitely recommend.

We had a good night despite a mix up with the food. They tried yo blame the waitress but we knew it was more likely to have been in the kitchen. It wouldn't stop us going back though.

I don't think the menu is available on line, I certainly couldn't find it!

There is a limited dessert menu, as with most restaurants these days - I always have the pannacotta, or sorbet.
