We went here in July and had a lovely meal, and great service. We liked it so much we went back a few days later and had a completely different experience. The food was ok but just not as good as the first time and...More

Although the food was pretty good at this restaurant, the service from one staff member left a lot to be desired. On arrival at this restaurant we asked whether they had a table available for our party. The person at the main counter hardly bothered...More

What a absoloutley joke! The place was empty! The food was cold! The staff were the rudest I have met and the overall atmosphere was drab! It felt like a chore to be there, mucky cutlery, and the place smelt of damp! Wouldn't go again...More
