Went with my wife for an evening meal recently. The food was superb - really nice steak and chicken fricasse. Staff are very friendly and attentively. Good value for money and we’ll very likely be back for a return trip later this week.

Good atmosphere and great waiter. Food was good as usual and tasted great. My only negative is the seating. The chairs are really uncomfortable for a larger person.
