Specialising in grilled food doesn't mean we haven't got some superb other seafood, fish and vegetarian dishes and we happily cater for gluten free and most other dietary requirements.

Only let down was a single item on the menu that did not appear, in our opinion, to coincide with what was served. Other than for that the venue must be congratulated for the service, restaurant was absolutely full. Food was excellent.

Visited with a group of 50 colleagues for our Christmas celebration. We were looked after extremely well and the food was amazing, especially with the number of people being catered for. Everything was delicious. I had lots of great feedback from everyone who attended.

The large dining room is really pretty. Good menu - I had fried tiger prawns as starters and the curry of the day. Both maybe not extraordinary, but certainly satisfying. I enjoyed the frequent and attentive service. One worth coming back to.
