Our table was booked in advance for 28 people. The seating was great, the staff very helpful and friendly. My husband and I ordered the fish/chips and salad as it had been beautiful the previous time we dined here - BUT this time the fish was revolting, all gooey batter and a slice of fish in between. Would recommend trying... More

We were a group of four with a prior booking. Place was buzzing- well patronised in the dining area. Meals and drinks were reasonably priced. Enjoyed a perfectly cooked fillet steak with my choice of salad and fries, while my partner enjoyed a mountain sized helping of Chicken Parmigiana. Staff were most attentive and friendly. This was our first visit... More

We had a late lunch here today for a group of four. The service and food were excellent. We totally recommend the fish and chips and lambs fry.

Great service and the food was excellent. Price was high and restaurant was not well patronised. Maybe others feel value for money is not high.

Not sure if the same owners or name as first time but the food & service was as good both times, the pork belly was to die for and deserts the best I've had in a very long time, a must try for food lovers!!

Our party of five were able to chat without feeling intruded upon by other nearby guests. Main course meals were enjoyed by four of our five, with the chicken burger crumbed meat absolutely fried dry and unable... More

Great location, great decor really nice staff. We made the mistake of ordering the scotch fillet. Asked for medium rare. We both got a skinny cut of steak probably off the bargain bin at a cheap supermarket. I suspect it was impossible for the chef to cook as was load d with fat and gristle. One end fatter than the...
