Unfortunately the female bar staff member was not overly friendly but the food was good and prices were reasonable. Nice setting, place was quite busy but food was quick to arrive at table. Good size portions and very tasty. Wood visit again.

I was stuffed and happy, I will be recommending the open arms... More
