We had a thoroughly enjoyable family birthday dinner here this week. Staff were all very friendly, attentive and courteous, making sure we were all very well looked after in terms of drinks. There was such a great selection on the menu that it was difficult to choose just one dish. Between us we had a salmon, chicken, pasta and 2... More

First of all: you need a reservation, cause this place is well known by the locals. And locals are around you when you eat here. I had fish, and my husband had a 500 grams (!) rumpsteak. Both meals came in a huge portion and were absolutely well prepared. The waitresses were all young, fast and they seemed to love... More

My husband had one of the burgers witch came with two burgers! Again portion size was quite generous although he wasn't a massive fan of the patties. The staff were very lovely.... More

I like sweetbreads and they are available done in batter here. I was with a group and we all enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere is pleasant

Took both our mothers there for Mother's Day this year. Food as always was fabulous with a set menu. Took a while for meals to come out however worth the wait. Friendly staff and very reasonably priced. Thank you. We must come back more often

After struggling to find somewhere to eat the previous night, we spotted this place on the way to Bluff so headed here on our way back. Luckily we arrived early as the restaurant filled up very quickly. The food was really nice and we were even tempted into having desserts too, which were delicious!
