A great night was had by our party of 11 which ranged in age from 9 to over 80. The menu is great so all were pleased and the service was very friendly and helpful.

Visited for brunch on Sunday with friends. Service was efficient and friendly. The menu read good and the food looked good but failed to deliver on flavour. In the end I felt it was a bit pricey for average food.
