Driving home after a trip to Wales for Mothers Day we were looking for somewhere for dinner. We spotted Whats Cooking and decided to give it ago. And what a lovely surprise it was! Lovely, friendly service, tasty freshly cooked food and it all was reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.

Have ordered from here several times in the past, always had a good take away, and have never been disappointed with the taste or the amount of food.
