My favourite local. Fast friendly service. Food is always lovely
Brilliant, first time at this restaurant and no complaints at all. Despite it was Easter Sunday and really busy the service wasn't too slow, the food was fantastic and the service was friendly. Definitely going back real soon.
Excellent food, curtious and friendly staff. We arrived 10 minutes late due to traffic but this didn't appear an issue for the restaurant staff and were very welcoming.
