Had a wonderful meal with friends and family at the end of January. Good food and friendly service. There were 16 of us and the staff went out of their way to make the seating work for our party. Well worth a visit

We attended this place because it looked good on the Trip Advisor reviews. I have to agree the ambience of the place is really good, the staff very genial, and prompt, with good humour. The food is at the other end of the spectrum, a...More
