Excellent food with a great value mid-week deal of bread, a main course and a drink for £10. Portions were plenty and the staff could not have been more delightful. Good coffee served with homemade biscuits was a really nice touch. If back in the area will definitely be back. Would advise booking

I do wonder how many customers will come back though. I recently read an amazing review of the restaurant in a... More

Arrived at the restaurant and was greeted by a sullen and unhelpful waiter, no warm greetings which... More

Called with my wife last week and we were somewhat surprised when we walked through the door, a total transformation from the last time we visited. They've installed a massive pizza type oven which is in full view of the customers, the food was very good and was reasonably price, the service was great to start with but no one... More

Mother's Day menu was brilliant, there was something for everyone. The food was delicious with no faults whatsoever. New premises are lovely and fresh. Service was second to none. Will definitely return
