Had a great wee lunch there on the Sunday, with some really nice staff too.

Turns out that upstairs is MASSIVE too, which only means its a bit of a slog to get to the loos.

But the food was fine and the staff were friendly. Certainly worthwhile.

This was a very nice restaurant and the staff were very friendly. We had to wait quite a while on our drinks but apart from that everything was to a good standard.

Only went in because other places had stopped serving meals. It was 10 pm. Sat next to food waste bins! Staff very nice untill I asked to change my drink as it tasted strange. Meal was dry and nothing special but we were starving and ate most of it. No I wouldn't go again rather have a MacDonald's!

Despite the food being good we will not be returning. We were seated and order taking strait away. We were then waiting 1 hour before food arrived. We asked our waiter what the hold up and gave poor excuses or ignored us all together. Other tables were seated and hit food that arrived 45 mins after we were seated. AVOID!!!!
