The food was ok on the night unfortunatley the service was very poor. We ordered from the Happy Hour menu,with a choice of two starters a main from a pasta/pizza selection and either ice cream or a coffee for a fiver very good value. The decor comprises of assorted old pictures on the walls and old lampshades hanging upside down from the ceiling. What was a big let down on the night was the time we waited between courses,a total turn around of over two hours for a party of only three,we did get an apology but only after we complained. This venue would be suitable for small parties and couples, just hope our experience was a one off,
