Food nothing special. Ladies toilets leave a lot to be desired. Staff can't be faulted. Very helpful. Overpriced for what we had. Won't be rushing back.

Arrived to be seated quickly..ordered and drinks brought quickly. All staff very efficient and the girl running the pass was first class. Unfortunately the food wasn't up to scratch. Most items very greasy...pork skewers really dry. Service outstanding, food not even close.
