Thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. We came for lunch on Valentines, and only wanted to order little bits, which the staff were very helpful. The food was brilliant and the staff were really nice and made us feel welcome. Will definitely be back for lunch and a proper meal too!

Visited last night 4th February. The place was busy and buzzing with a great atmosphere. The service was excellent from happy, amusing waiters and the food was absolutely gorgeous with good size portions. We all had a mixture of starters and main courses from the huge choice menu and specials!. We will definately be going back soon. A****** Thank you... More

Where do I start ? Food was just about edible, garlic mushrooms where literally 2 sliced mushrooms fried, no garlic taste. Pizza not cooked properly, bland, tasteless. Looking around the place, wires hanging in many places. Floor dirty around the edges of the skirting boards shabby. Meaningless objects framed, and to my suprize laminated paper articles on the walls boasting... More

Excellent quality of food served throughout the 5 courses, the staff were utterly wonderful, cheery and bright. The Christmas songs sang by the waiters was appreciated by all. My only complaint would be the dessert and coffee option, surely Christmas pudding followed by coffee and mince pies is more or less the same thing ? A Cheeseboard to share would... More

19 people for Christmas Eve! Not a problem for this restaurant, very accommodating. Great atmosphere, attentive staff, good food and plenty of alcohol. All the ingredients for a fantastic time. So much so, we've just booked the same table again for next year! 😉.
