Calamari had no taste to it, the calzone was very dry with just a passata style bland sauce on it. Expensive. Plus side the house wine was nice.

We dropped by here over the weekend. It was situated about a 5 minute drive from our hotel. From the outside it is deceptively small, but there is an upstairs seating area too. The place had quite a few in when we visited but they...More

Superb! Booked straight back in for a birthday celebration. The hard part will be choosing what to eat. The easy part is knowing it will be fantastic.

Valantines night disaster. Your response to my complaint is utter rubbish. No one was drunk in fact I am teetotal. my starter was wrong and awful. My husbands and friend ordered soup which was full of sugar and neither could eat it. The starter took over an hour to arrive. When I enquired where it was I was told we hadn't waited long even though we had been waiting over an hour. I told her it was wrong starter was informed it was my fault it was late for ordering garlic bread? I was offered for it to be changed but didn't want to wait any longer. The garlic bread that did arrive was over done and dry and I shared it with my husband and friend as their soup was so awful. When we commented on the soup to the waitress she said its vegetarian? No apology. We then got sick of waiting for the main so decided to leave. Which we did and paid what we thought the night was worth. In fact apart from the drinks the food was worth nothing and the service was terrible. Your attitude to our complaint shows that you really do not care but I hope that some lesson has been learnt. We have learnt not to recommend you and never come back.
