I took my old Mum for a mother's day lunch. We each had a steak, mine medium rare Mum's well done. Each were cooked to perfection. With the steaks were onion rings , garlic mushrooms, vine tomatoes and skinny chips. I couldn't finish it all. The welcome was lovely, the service superb. Faultless, flawless, first class. Thanks guys.

Other members of party had macaroni and steak pie and were pleased with their choice.... More

Stopped by on a whim looking for some tasty food and we weren't disappointed. Lovely starter of monkfish scampi followed by king prawn linguini - light, tasty, good portion. Very impressed. Prices reasonable and service attentive. Will return.
