Haven been here before and thought the food was great - unfortunately something lacking now - selection not as diverse not as nearly as appetizing. What we ordered was okay and the staff and service was good

I have been here a couple of times now and every time I go the staff are very friendly and the cabinet display is always presented well. Menu food is fantastic. Would recommend to try this place as its under new management.

The venue would not have been my choice but it was Mother's Day and my lovely wife had delegated the choice to someone else. The food was average, the coffee disgusting and we spent the whole time waving of a large number of flies that...More
