Great restaurant. Lovely menu. Looked after the 7 kids we took. Great service and looking forward to returning again, but with maybe not so many kids next time!
Very friendly staff, delicious tempura monkfish starter from the specials board followed by slow roast belly pork with crackling. Nice selection of wines by the glass, essential when only one of you wants a glass! Good atmosphere, we will definitely be going again
Very enjoyable meal, with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Lovely homemade soup with plenty of flavour. Roast beef and vension cooked perfectly! Would not hesitate to recommend.
