Excellent restaurant that we have visited many times, always very accommodating and "as it says on the tin" Piri Piri is great but also a varied menu too.

Returned to our local again and never disappoints - sat inside for first time - rustic and cosy ambience. Always attentive and good fresh ingredients and tasty meals. Thank you for remaining true.

Food was alright after waiting almost an hour!! Service was alright too I think the staff need to be a little more friendly towards customers. It is a bit pricey for what you get but that's not a big problem. All in all would have preferred to go somewhere else but was closed on this particular night. In two minds... More

The Piri Piri here was so good... More

We said that it is ilegal not to give an invoice when asked, and she answered "is it also ilegal the computer to break!?" Come on! She just had to... More

We ate here this week and were not overly impressed - chicken piripiri was just okay, chicken stir fry was so salty it made the lips tingle, because there was far too much soy sauce. Also the stir fry came with spaghetti and not rice noodles, which was strange! Portions were on the smaller side too, but yet without wine... More
