Visited here on a Sunday evening in mid November. Read the reviews about this restaurant don't know what the fuss is about. Average food in an 80's looking place, a step up from carvery. The wine by the glass is tiny and probably best as its vile paint stripper. If u r stuck ok but a lot better about.
