We went for my daughter's birthday. My dad had a prior enagement and they were more than happy to cook his dinner first. The menu was very varied and reasonably priced. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We ordered 4 different items from the Mexican menu and shared them. Everything was nice. The staff was polite and friendly. We will definitely visit again.

We have been here a number of times and have always found the atmosphere, food and drinks excellent. In particular, a big effort is made with the cocktails. Service is friendly and brisk but you don't feel rushed.

A small family run restaurant serving the local area. Maybe a little on the noisy side but then it's only a small place so it can get a little loud and cosy. The food though makes up for it! Lots of choice, cooked well with excellent service what more could you want. The manageress came over to our table at... More

Go here every year with our badminton group for our Christmas meal here and we have a great time. The staff are really accommodating and work well taking care of large groups. The food is great especially the new menu there are so many more options.
