We were staying the Sunday night only and arriving in the evening, we ate at this restaurant on the recommendation of the Hotel where we were staying. The meal was tasty, service was adequate and the dinner experience was overall what we wanted and expected.

Called in tonight for a meal and found that the food was decent. A good spot to eat while the kids play in the playground outside. Plenty of spots to sit and eat either inside or outside and was clean.would go again while in town.

Ate in the Chinese restaurant. Food was nice and served promptly. Prices were as expected for the food. The restaurant feels a bit old and worn out and plastic table cloths are not great.

This Chinese was delicious. Fast service. Could take away left overs. The pub looks ordinary from outside but has a play area for kids which is great. Will return.
