Went with some friends after been told good things about this place. We got seated quiet rude member of staff seated us not very polite . The food was ok no major complaint about that but the staff made us felt as if we were taking to much time to make the order . When we did make the order it took ages inbetween starters and main food . The pork and black pudding was ok .not amazing tho . Walked out feeling very let down .

Thank Burnardm

I came here with my cousin as it offers a wide range of different food styles and, therefore, caters for a wide range of tastes. He said it was a place he visited often and it was a good choice. The service was very good, the quality of the food was what I'd been told to expect - also very good. I would recommend this place.
