Lovely food (with plenty of choice for veggies), great service (despite it being a really busy night for them) and very reasonable prices - we will definitely be back!

Dare was great. The food was really nice and the portions weren’t too big. The waitresses were both lovely. Me and my boyfriend had a great evening.
