We opted for 3 course menu having the Greek chicken for starters, the T-bone steak main with a shared side order of sweet potato fries and both chose the sorbets for dessert. Believe it or... More

Fantastic food and atmosphere. I was given a gift voucher for my birthday by my lovely neice and nephew for my favourite restaurant. Been coming here since it opened and can honestly say we have never been disappointed. Paul and his team are amazing and always deliver a first class experience. Special shout out to Andrea!

Desserts were excellent. My chocolate pudding was served with popcorn... More
