Food was delicious, we both had steak which was cooked perfectly & beautifully presented. Waiters really attentive & offered a great level of customer service. But its the view that makes this place! Will definitely be back again & can highly recommend.

Very good food, not too badly priced Good service and if you get a window seat great view. The down side is the ridiculously priced drinks. No beer under £3.90. Shameful rip off.

So sorry to hear of your recent disappointing visit with us. I am glad you enjoyed your first two visits with us but it's a shame they were let down by misbehaved dogs. We hope you return again soon. Many thanks, Josh Davies.
