Went for dinner with friends from work. Extensive Greek menu and lovely food. If you go you have to try rizogla the Greek rice pudding it was delicious

I chose this restaurant for a meet-up with my brother that I hadn't seen for years - it was a really important occasion. I've been to Greece many times and was looking forward to a plate of calamari and Greek salad - my favourite meal in the world! This is what I said when I ordered: 'olives and bread as... More

We had a great lunch - far too much to eat, but very very nicely presented and well cooked. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Everywhere was nice and clean - toilets were good. We enjoyed our lunch and will definitely be back again. Evenings looked like they were lively affairs and the whole ambiance was traditionally cypriot mixed with... More

I went here last Friday for a friends birthday, there were 7 of us. It was very quiet with just a slight murmur of music in the background. Not really what we were hoping for on a Friday night dinner. This said, the staff were really friendly and accommodating. We ordered 5 mezé (2 were having other mains instead) and... More

Visited as a large group for a Friday night meal. Nice cosy venue and wasn't very busy which I didn't mind. We all had a mixture of starters and mains and enjoyed. Pints of peroni come in at £4.80 which is a bit steep but that seems to be the norm nowadays. Will definitely visit again as the portions are... More

We stumbled across this pub whilst on a walk on a lovely autumn day. What a find! A little traditional pub with all original features but serving the most delicious Greek food. We sat by the fire and had a few meze. Best dolmades I have ever eaten. Really fresh ingredients and the staff were really friendly. We will definitely... More

Ate in this little quaint location a couple of weeks ago with a small party of friends. Food was authentic, freshly prepared and cooked and reasonably priced. Service was really good and they made sure everything was good. Yes, it is in the middle of nowhere, but don't let that put you off. Plan ahead and book a cab each... More
