Visited on a Monday evening, two for dinner. Restaurant was busier than expected for a Monday night. Decor was nice although the place was little dimly lit. We sat near the bar which was a bit cold due to the door to the beer garden...More

This was our second Sunday visit to this restaurant, returning because the Sunday lunch was so awesome last time. Brilliant menu for non-roast food too. Very well chosen selection of dishes, nicely cooked and with a friendly staff team.

We popped in for drinks on a hot summer's day and had cocktails in the outdoor area at the back. This is a very popular place and the cocktails were nice. Will try the food on our next visit.
