Visited here after a gap of a few years. This place is still as good. Lovely, helpful staff. Very good food, and prices not bad. We went early on, but there was a steady trickle of customers. Thoroughly recommend.

Great food, very helpful staff. The lamb dish was superb very tender unlike lamb dishes in other restaurants. Always have lamb here as it does not disappoint.

5 of us went out for a meal to celebrate my birthday. The waiter came straight over with the drinks menu (not much option) he also took our order. We asked for our starters to be brought out with poppadoms and pickles but this didn't happen so it delayed the main course for 2 people that didn't require a starter.... More
