Great food and atmosphere. Staff were very attentive. We visit quite often and never had a bad meal there. Beer battered mushrooms are to die for also the steak sandwich. We'll definitely be back.

This has become a regular haunt of ours in recent times. The menu is extensive and the food is excellent, as is the service. Great value too with lunch-time, early and fixed price offerings. Service is always pleasant and quite prompt. Equally ideal for a leisurely family meal are for a quick "on the road" bite

Like we were being push out of the way as we had kids. Even other patrons were wondering what she was at asking us to move.... More

I visited this place with friends recently. Everyone enjoyed their meals, but could only eat main courses. The food is great but the portion sizes are enormous. Surroundings are pleasant and the staff are nice and helpful. Even with our healthy appetites we could not have eaten a starter or dessert along with the main course. When we visited this... More

When we arrived we were doubtful and chat that some of the staff had a late night and no breakfast on the menu had us worried. The waitress came and listened to our request, consulted with the chef and... More

We stopped here during the summer for bite to eat as an alternative to eating in our hotel. Food was fantastic! Service was great. This place is definitely worth a visit, great value for money.
