We had a nice evening here while on holiday. We ate Fish n chips and chicken wraps with chips. Both very good, good value and tasty. Nice to sit outside in the beer garden.

Just left fairly disappointed, my kids ordered the wings and some chips the wife got the steak and Guinness pie and I opted for the fish and chips.

Everyone loves it. Friendly staff and great food. Chef cooks pub grub and takes one away from middle east. The only downer is that it is on Le meridien premises.

The staff are brilliant starting with Mayer the leader and charismatic gentleman. Also Rosemond Fernándes alao sluck and composed and the the cool Snedden Rodrigues. Thank you... More
