Visited to have dinner with my family for a birthday treat and it was the worst dining experience we’ve ever had. The starters were cold, my chicken was severely undercooked, and the staff didn’t really care for our complaints. AVOID!!!

Been here a couple of times with Friends and Family. Nice atmosphere and a bit more upmarket than your standard "boozer". Gets really busy at the weekends at night but plenty of staff on who deal with the crowd.
