I've never had a bad meal here. The food is fabulous and great customer service. Decor could do with an update.

I've been visiting this restaurant for nearly 18 years since I lived in the area. The food is that good that I'll happily drive for over an hour and a half each way just for dinner there. Wonderful atmosphere, fabulous food, a real quality family run establishment. Just go. You won't regret it. I'll be back soon.

They are very... More

I've been here twice now. Once for dinner and once for lunch and both times I've had some fantastic food. Today I had the prosciutto mozzarella starter and my partner had the calamari.
