Great value with the lunchtime menu and lots of to choose from. The food was delicious and the service was great too. Would recommend this restaurant.
Overall the food was very tasty, enjoyable, and well presented. Unfortunately the main guest, whose birthday it was, had a lamb meal that he couldn't really eat - it was too tough! This was a shame as we had been to the restaurant a few times before with no complaint whatsoever, only praise. The staff, as always, were very friendly and accommodating. We were very pleased that the background music was just that - in the background! Many other restaurants have music so loud you cannot speak to each other. The décor helps to round off a pleasant evening.
Lovely meal ,and atmosphere,will be back,love trying all the flavours
