Firm favourite. Never had a bad meal or had to wait ages for food. Lovely family run business. One of the best restaurants in Turunc. Gets very busy but still made to feel welcome.

We have been going to this restaurant, and Johns previous restaurants, for some years now. The food is always good, the welcome excellent and the family are always pleased to see you. As someone else said, they remember you from year to year and this immediately makes you feel at home..... but new customers are always given the same warm... More

Good choice of traditional dishes on the menu which were explained carefully by John and the food was served efficiently with the help of his wife and daughter. We both had excellent meals. We particularly enjoyed the busy and friendly atmosphere, it's deservedly popular.
