However the staff were running around like headless chickens,no doubt doing there best to cope. We where told we would have a 15 minute wait which ended up 45 minutes. It is my opinion... More

The visit was with family and friends early on New Year's Eve evening. The beer is superb, and the food was fantastic. We all had starters and a curry, most were different. The quality of the food was excellent very tasty and not too hot. All meals were ate enthusiastically by all adults and kids as young as five. If... More

We visited here in January 2017 with our two young boys. We decided to go at opening time after School on a Friday as we knew it would be quiet and it was a good time for the children. We were welcomed with the usual friendly service and our drinks order was taken straight away. The food was very tasty,... More

Went with a big group of people for 18th Birthday party on Boxing Day. Our visit this time will be remembered for poor service and plate of popodums going over my head. Although I understand Boxing Day to be one of the busiest days of the year, the experience felt rushed and they seem keen to cram the party onto... More

Decided to go for a meal on mad Friday (for some strange reason)place was full of works parties who shall we say appeared 'testing' on the staff. The service was fantastic, food came in good time and was excellent. Never been to this restaurant previously as being newish to the area, but would certainly return in a hurry! Highly recommended

Thank 916ckel
