What a gem of a place! We visited tonight and had a fab night! The owners were lovely, very accommodating of our female indecisiveness and the waitress was lovely. Not only was the food great but the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. We're so pleased we stumbled across you!

Sunday roast is gorgeous. The wife Lynn can seem grumpy and wants to close handy so she can get to Marios for a drink. She's lovely underneath that exterior. Not professional restauranteurs but good fun eating there. Paul is Basil faulty and mans the till. Go here for a good priced Sunday roast with proper crispy potatoes and gorgeous desserts.

We visited here recently and were shown to an unprepared table by a lady who was muttering things about how busy she was etc etc. I have to say that the setting was beautiful ,a pleasant breeze looking out over countryside with the sun setting. The food on offer was limited,we were shown the specials board,when we asked if we... More

This place has such potential with fantastic views and in such a lovely setting in Tala Village Square. Sadly the owners ruin it all from the minute you walk in, they are almost hostile towards customers. And the food was not great either. The starter was ok but one of the owners stood over me waiting for me to finish!... More

The best food for ages try Curry nights Thursday or Cod and Chips on Friday not forgetting Sunday lunch and their open Sunday Evening. Family owed hard working couple that make you welcome. There are great special on the board and a regular menu at all times.

The roast offered is normally beef, pork and chicken all of which are good as are the roast potatoes. You also get offered all the sauces e.g horseradish, apple sauce etc We have always... More

From the other reviews I've read since returning from my trip you'll either love this place or hate it! While looking for somewhere to eat in the square we noticed the curry night here so decided to give it a go. You get poppadoms and dips to start, a choice of 3 curries for main and dessert for a set... More

Do not go to this place....for years now the 'owner/manager' has been complaining about how she doesn't want to be there....normally has a 'fag' in her mouth and really does not give a damn. Having previously eaten in this so called 'bistro', and having ordered steak which was not cooked to our order, we were told that 'the chef cannot... More

The view was lovely, service was okayish but the food was very indifferent. It was not a complex menu and the dishes we had were very inconsistent in quality. There is nothing wrong with plain food but it must be cooked and presented to perfection. Sadly this was not the case here.
