We came here just before our first baby was due, as our last chance to get out as the two of us. We were happy with our choice as the food was excellent and the service was impeccable. I wholeheartedly recommend the meatballs. Delicious!!!

Lucky to have found this place in Macclesfield - something a bit different off the main stretch. First time to Macclesfield for a bit of shopping - not impressed with the shops but lunch here was amazing. Will definitely be back for an evening meal....More
