Great food and very classy interior however very mixed messages between members of staff and their website as to promotional offers. When I have had food, mostly good. Would recommend but don't expect to be able to use any offer you might of seen.

I can’t even begin to say how gutted we were that we chose this place for a special occasion. Neither of us could finish our meal. The calamari was horrifically chewy and you couldn’t even swallow it. My partner has the fish and chips which...More
