We had a great two course meal, the service was quick and courteous, the food was delicious. This was a family birthday and we chose to spend it where we knew the food would be a special experience. We were not disappointed!

Decent service and vibrant atmosphere on a Wednesday lunchtime. Tasty food - I had the tuna nicoise but not cheap £16.50 for lunch. Though we could have ordered from the (much more limited) cheaper set price menu.More

Attention to detail on our anniversary made all the difference, the Sunday roast was a delight, I liked the starter fish soup and my wife likes the starter pea salad

Hiya, the website features both the normal menu and the special one for those on a more restricted budget but I think you won't see the specials until you actually visit.
