Really happy with our choice. Came highly recommend from the B&B owners we were staying with. The menu was enormous. The food was delicious. The portion sizes were enormous. If we had realised we would not have ordered desserts. You can't go wrong choosing this place. Really happy.

During a short break in the city we decided to give the restaurant a try, expecting a Monday night to be quiet we couldn't believe how busy it was always a good sign, the staff where realyy friendly and the food was great and plenty to choose from in the early dinner menu and really well priced.
