Staff are excellent. Food is tremendous. Sammy, the owner, is genuinely keen to make sure everything goes well. Julie, Sammy's wife ensures that the recipes are great tasting. Excellent value. No cards and bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Hi Thakor, I have looked online but have not managed to find one! it is a nice place though, if you go remember to take your own beer, lager or wine (they don't charge a corkage), have a nice meal ;-)))
