Had a wonderful time here with my partner. The staff couldn't have been nicer and accomodating. The food was nice and inexpensive. An all round good night.

Hi Laurie. We are very well priced. The most expensive meal on the menu is our fillet steak at £20. Specials are different, depending on what is on offer. Pizzas start at £8 and burgers at £8/£9 too! Hope that helps.
