Visited this Restaurant based on reviews & was not disappointed. The Restaurant is well laid out and the staff friendly and helpful. On the day we visited it was very busy which resulted in a little delay in our meals arriving, but they were worth the wait. The food was well cooked and well presented with good sized portions. Can recommend this venue.

Came in here after looking at a promising menu. The first girl snappingly asked if we have booked a table no hello or welcome, then 5 minutes of waiting for them to find a table for 2 when there were 7 tables and around 30 seats. Ridiculously told that despite having 30 seats they did not have space for 2 for an hour.
I’ll never be coming back, restaurant stank and was ugly anyway, spared me the pain of the stanky restaurant and bad attitude so thanks

Managed to get a table, when most other restaurants were booked. Had to wait but was worth it. The food was excellent and the staff offered great service. Can highly recommend. We actually booked another night later in the week.
