Enjoyable experience. Tasty food.Welcoming staff.We arrived just after a large party and because of this had to wait just a little longer than usual. A member of staff explained and we were offered a complementary drink.That doesn't happen often. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were a group of 10 and called in at 5-ish to see if they could fit us in at 6pm. They managed to accommodate us and we all had a great meal in a very convivial atmosphere. Will return!
