Good choice of food on menu to suit all palettes. All of our meals cooked to perfection and ample portions. Cozy and homely atmosphere. Friendly and welcoming staff. Service was wonderful and you are not rushed. Reasonably prices. Would thoroughly recommend this place.

The food was excellent well presented and reasonably value. The staff were very friendly and helpful not pushy or overly quick to disturb you when you were eating. Definitely somewhere I would recommend to try, recommend booking before you go. 😀😀👍👍
