We have been to the restaurant on several occasions, on arrival we were met with a warm friendly greeting, shown to out table where drinks orders taken. Orders for our meals taken quickly, with first course arriving very quick, choice of starter for each person commented how tasty they were. Main course and sweet arrived and again was excellent, service from all the staff was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend the restaurant to anyone. We have already booked for later in the month.
