6 of us Ryton for our Christmas night out on a 70s/80s tribute. The entertainment was excellent food ok but the drinks are so expensive. £25 for an average bottle of wine. Spoilt the night.

What a fantastic hidden gem. It was recommended by friend and I wasn't disappointed the price was extremely reasonable and food absolutely delicious. We had 2x Starters 2 x mains and 2 large soft drinks for less than £40 will definitely be going back.

Visited lunchtime today with my fiancé, my parents and my sister. We all went for the 2 course midweek offer which was only £10.95, or £14.95 for 3 courses. The food was excellent, as was the service. I'm a vegan and was a bit cheeky and took my own dairy free cheese and asked for it to be added on... More

Went here last Saturday (24th) for a birthday meal. Earlier on in the day I had taken banners balloons and sequins for the table as it was my mums birthday. We arrived at the restaurant at 8pm and the banners and decorations was nowhere to be seen. Disappointed really as they said earlier they would put them up. The food... More
