With a view on the airport tarmac it's a great place to have breakfast on a weekend. Impressed with the banting option pizza on the menu. Friendly staff. Overall appearance can however be improved by simply giving more attention to the layout of the tables.

Have good pizzas but the rest very average. Drinks prices are steep. Live music is good sometimes. Pity no dancing allowed they would get far more peeps going.

We visoted this venue as a family with small children on a Sunday. We were seated outside to be close to the kiddies playground which was spotlessly clean. To my mind, the meal (starters and mains) was totally overpriced. I expected much more than this....More
