I ate here with some friends in April 2017 and the food is very tasty. We for two shared platters and it was sufficient for 4. Good choice of beers but service could have been a bit sharper.

Tried to book last weekend but they were booked out, Johnny took our number and called us when he got a cancellation. The staff were great, nothing was a hassle for them. The food was lovely, we all had different dishes and everything was very tasty. I look forward to going back

Between us 6 some had... More
