The service was a bit slow and we had to ask for things several times. We asked them to turn down the awful music 3 or 4 times before they did, it was blasting out and we couldn't talk over it. The food was all well priced except for the rib eye. This was over £20 and even though the... More

Great food, great price, well worth a visit if you do try the specials menu you won't be disappointed, we go about once a month and I've tried a few different meals from the special menu and never had a bad meal, a little gem of a place.

I love this restaurant. It's tiny, feels authentic is amazing value for money and the food is really good! Only slight niggle is the lager which I think must be tinned. Not as good as an icy cold draught ..... it wouldn't stop me though.

Can't begin to count the times iv'e been here.......great for couples or a crowd, we have even had Chritmas Lunch there. Fantastic ! Plenty of Parking outside although pay and display during the day.Ground floor so no stairs. Top tip.....Pizza and pasta is always good but try the Specials board, good food at low prices !
