Nice restaurant nice atmosphere food and price okay. The toilets spoil this venue as they were not very clean.

An excellent meal was had by all. Busy staff but friendly and attentive. Would go there again. I had the burger, mother had the pie, one sister had the hock and the other had steak. Very tasty food freshly made and delivered to table immediately.More

There is a seating area but only small in front of the bar - but the staff are superb I am sure they will accommodate if more seats are required. I'm sure you will enjoy as it's always fabulous.
