Very comfortable relaxed restaurant. You had a very welcoming face as soon as you walked in.Spacious,clean and courteous waiters. Service was quick. Didn't have to wait for food very long at all. Couldn't find fault at all even if I tried to look for one. Locally the best restaurant I have been to. Only down fall the massive mark up on a bottle of wine. 50% profit on what prices you see in the supermarket the restaurant wont be paying supermarket prices.Food was we found very pricey. Above all a visit because of prices just now and again.If the price was cheaper then we would make it a regular thing. Enjoyed the evening.
