What a horrible experience we had having a meal here. We walked in and the waitress was rude and pointed to a table and threw the menus at us. That should have sent alarm Bells ringing but we where so hungry and tired we stayed....More

A very quiet town centre and then a quiet restaurant made for a nervous start to a meal. A single chef and single waitress were not pressured by the 3 filled tables. A mix of starters were of good quality.. meatballs/garlic bread/breaded mushrooms. Pasta mains...More
