As others have said - a long wait but great food takes time. Prawns from the grill were perfect. Excellent service - will definitely go back.

Tasteless greasy soup filled with potatoes and dried out chicken. No reaction when told of dried chicken at end of meal. Fast service with no follow up, no offer of dessert or coffee. Never again
