Had passed this place quite often but today we stopped and are so glad we did. It was very busy but the staff were very quick and efficient and the food was excellent. Only down side? It closes at 2pm

I would, they haven't got many tables and it can get busy especially during weekends. I have managed to get a table during the week without booking but that's just a gamble.

When I visited, it was for an evening meal. There were no children in that night. We dined in the conservatory where the tables are not on top of one another, but where the bar is it seemed quite full and the tables quite... More
