We have eaten at this venue before and been very satisfied. On this occasion apparently the owners were not on site, one of whom is the chef. My own and another's fish and chips were so overcooked, that most chips were crisp and hollow. The fish was similarly cremated. We informed the waiter of our disappointment, but all he said... More

Went with the girlfriend for dinner, both had scallops, cooked to perfection but could of done with more seasoning, again same with the my main (beef cheek bourginion) all very nice and nicely presented, just missing that edge that would take it to extra special and service slightly slow. Saying that was very reasonably priced, will try again
