My husband and I called in here yesterday at 2.20 we walked through the small bar to the restaurant. No customers and no staff so we left. Very disappointing as I have been here several times with friends and enjoyed it.

Have now been 3 times in about last 12 months. Really good first time, ordinary last 2. Food just tasted a bit manufactured. Not feeling the love............san Miguel on draft isn't cold really which is not good.

Lovely food and great choice especially for me being vegetarian. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. We eat here regularly and are never disappointed. Great value for money. Not sure how it'd work for large groups, but great for couples
