An extensive menu with something to please each of our group. Service was very prompt and very good. As it became busier, it was quite difficult to hear what friends were saying which was a bit of a shame.

Food was promptly served and cooked to perfection and good value too. I have tried one of their new thick airy base Burrata pizza and I... More

Myself and 2 friends ate here on a night out midweek. Extremely good value for money, 2 courses for £10.95 deal on vouchercloud. Good service and lovely tasting food, very impressed with the puddings and how they were served.

Went for a family meal and was sorely disappointed by the portion sizes. For £12 I got a handful of pasta and about half a field mushroom. The food was almost stone cold and the pasta was undercooked. If it hadn't have taken so long to get I might have sent it back ( the place was pretty much empty).... More

My friend and I went to the cinema and then on to Ask. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food came quite quickly and was excellent. Our problem was with the oil bottles on the tables. They are placed on the edge of the table and as my friend took her seat the oil bottle went flying on... More
