A large group of us booked in late on a Saturday night, when the staff were hoping the night would due down. They warmly received us, and hosted a wonderful night. Great food and very welcoming staff

Rocked up without a booking, got a table straight away. Chef was great, some great banter. Food was superb 👌 steak was perfectly cooked! Fantastic little gem of a restaurant. Easy to miss but definitely worth a visit.

The restaurant was empty when we got there. The local Indian Restaurant less than 50 metres away was fully booked. That should have told us something. The service by two young waitresses was excellent but this did not match the quality of the food. And...More
