Our third consecutive annual visit to this brilliant place. Family run, Vinny, Shane and co can't do enough to ensure you're looked after here. We ate there 3 nights and the food was consistently excellent and the service just brilliant. I wish I lived there!

We had a really good family dinner here on Easter Sunday. The place was packed but the service was really good and plus there was good entertainment that didn't drown out conversation.
