We had an excellent early-bird meal here. The staff were very welcoming and we liked being given flat bread and pesto straight away and also the jug of iced water. We had to move tables as the 2 ladies next to us seemed very loud!...More

I regularly eat here. The menu is varied and interesting and the service is always good. My only complaint would be the noise levels. It's a very popular spot and the buzz can be quite deafening.

We eat here once every 4/6 weeks. It never disappoints. Have the Sea Food Pasta or one of the daily specials. Great vibrant atmosphere.

We are in the Market square, right in the centre of town, half way down the main street. We are a 50 seater restaurant, recently renovated. The kitchen and foyer are downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. We are a bistro style establishment, we serve pizza, pasta, steak, fish, chicken and salads. Our emphasis is on fresh, local and organic where possible. We have been in the same building for 30 years and are family run.
