The service is quick and efficient and the food is excellent especially the fresh fish. The staff are friendly. The layout of the restaurant area could be better as it seems to be behind the bar and appears very dark even during the day. Nevertheless, the quality of the food and how well it is cooked certainly outweighs that.

Good choice of starters, mains and desserts from a small chalk board. All of us said we enjoyed our meal, mine was chicken balti with pilau rice and naan, excellent flavour and full of meat - not just sauce. Seemed a little short of bar staff was the only downside. Excellent choice of venue for small or large parties.

Visited today (party of 5 people) for lunch, all of us had a different mains, all had different desserts and all of us said all were delicious! Really large portions for both mains and desserts, all piping hot and served with a smile. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, great food, what more do you need? :o) Recommend highly.

Visited as a party of 7 to celebrate my fathers birthday - from the outside this is a good looking pub, the inside of the pub was good too but the seating we were given was rather cramped. The menu choices were quite impressive and the slimmers menu was something that I'd never seen before. The problems began when we... More
