Visited here on a Wednesday evening. Pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant was busy. Was attended by a couple of lovely waiters, food was fresh and plentiful, would definitely return. Excellent value for money.

We had Chinese last night for our New Year's Eve celebrations, and we're very disappointed! We ordered 2 kitchen specials which had next to no meat in and no sauce. The chips were extremely dry, you could hardly swallow. Thank goodness for the cans of cola, which were about the only decent thing about the meal. After phoning to make... More

Came here last night for a friend's birthday meal and as it was the first time of visiting here, I was pleasantly surprised as I had read some of the reviews which were negative. The food was very good and tasty and plenty of it. Also the service was excellent and very attentative. Will return when in the area.

Thank Judy R
