Been a couple of times recently with my husband. We tried to get in last minute one day but there was no chance as it was heaving. Food is great and service very good too. Definitely one of our preferred restaurants.

Never disapointed here. One of the few places left on the Wirral serving good food. Staff are always friendly and attentive, the food is delicious and always cooked to a high standard. Been here many times and will keep going back!
