Very quite when we first went in at 7.30, but was a lot busier by the time we left, which gave it a good atmosphere. Although limited menu, food was very good, and all the staff were very friendly & helpful. Would come back again.

Despite a busy Saturday night we had excellent service with a delicious Lamb special for me. My partner enjoyed the pasta and Italian sausage but a shame it was heavy on the pasta and light on the meat.
