Called in with my partner on spec, really nice menu, we both opted for the Cajun chicken and rice, moist succulent chicken with just the right hint of spice, tasty, fluffy rice and a lovely fresh salad, good value for money and pleasant service and surroundings, looking forward to visiting again to sample another dish. Thank you Keel row.

Once seated, it took a while to get served. When we finally ordered, the food took a while to arrive even though it wasn't that busy at the time. Other members of the party had starters, I didn't because I didn't think the choice was very good for vegetarians, luckily I didn't miss much. I was told my husband found... More
