Had a fantastic banquet for 4 people on Saturday. Lovely chilled atmosphere, friendly staff, and absolutely delicious food. Really good value for money for 4 courses. The chocolate brownie was heavenly. Will definitely return.

Waited an hour and ten minutes from ordering to getting our food. The portions were tiny and the food bland. The service from the staff was farcical. Would strongly suggest you give this one a miss.

After years of wanting to visit, we managed to get a full family night out. The food was fairly good but the service was terrible. 3 courses off the same side plate, the waitress said she just hadn't got around to bringing the dinner plates!...More
