The place was dirty and the food was well below average. I came here with my family and we really regretted it. I got the carbonara, it was flavourless and the pasta was overcooked, as was the steak my brother got. Would not recommend.

Waited a long time for drinks to arrive. One Starter arrived and waited a very long time for my Starter. Very slow and disappointed with my meal. The Staff were friendly and the Restaurant was clean.
