“Take my eyes just don't take me back there!”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Terrible! It was like there was a party in my mouth and everyone was being sick! They should be banned from selling food if they're not gunner try and cook it.

“Good service - Food just ok !”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

The service was excellent and the lady serving on her own did a great job ! The food was just ok, the menu seemed a bit old fashioned, and virtually everything seemed to come with a sauce ! I had the set menu, which was great value.

“"Fantastic"”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

we came here as a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children, we were well looked after and the food was superb, its a family run business and has a very authentic feel about it, the choices of mains and starters were delicious. The childrens choices were smaller portions of the mains and the chef/owner took just as much care in cooking those as he did ours. thank you very much for lovely evening and I hope I get to come back one day.

“Whats happened to the this reataurant!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The meal we had tonight was just awful. The one thing you could always rely on was the great lobster and prawn sauce, the lobster sauce tonight tasted of nothing other than flour, the fish cakes were terrible and the dessert bland.
