I love this place. Friendly, great service. Lovely food and great choice on menu. Sundays and bank holidays they have smaller menu but still plenty of choices and very good price. Highly recommend this place to eat, and lovely little beer garden too.

Did these people realise there has been a norovirus rampaging through the Wirral? Even Arrowe Park Hospital has stopped visitors because of the problem.This is more likely to be the cause of their illness. I really cannot believe their condition was due to food eaten at your wonderful establishment.
