Amazing starters and steak. Fantastic service! We will most definitely return, although won’t be having a starter next time as the main portions are huge.

There would be no problem with children included. The restaurant is not big so make sure you book well in advance to make sure you can all be fitted in, I am sure you will enjoy your meal.
