Me and my friend eat in here early every Sunday before heading out , we love it , although it doesn't have a booking process it's just first come first served basis we love it . It's a chilled atmosphere and can always get drinks and nibbles while you wait on your table !!!

Seated quickly. The food was excellent. Nice ambience about the place. I know it can be busy and you might have to wait to get a table, but you can have a drink while you wait. We were in on a Tuesday night... Only had to wait 10 minutes. Prompt and family staff
