Always good service, particularly from the owner. Their special lunch menus and takeaway meals are very good value, the evening menu being a little on the expensive side. Wine choice, quality and value needs to be a little better.

I can't comment on the restaurant, but I can certainly comment on how poor the take away service is.. I called and was told 30 minutes, fair enough, but to get there and wait another 30 minutes. No...
I left without my meal or an apology... Shocking service.

Visited last Monday and early doors with just two people dining they asked if we had booked!! When we tried to getting the attention from the miserable staff to secure a table it proved quite a task as they were more interested in sorting out the mix up with a takeaway customer and were totally disinterested in us. The place was cold and I sat in my coat for the whole of the meal. Water is 60p a glass and thats tapwater....... considering the amount there is about out there at the moment it seemed a bit steep. Food was ok nothing special. They cant seem to itemise your bill either you just get a price for booze and food and you cant work out what you have had. Wont be rushing back on a cold winters evening.

I went here recently for lunch with family as we had a seen an offer for a special lunch at £7. This set lunch offered soup and a spring roll, and then a choice of main and a rice from the main menu followed by coffee or tea.

The food was nice and served quickly with large portions.

The only downside was the fact that halfway through our lunch the staff decided they were going to start setting some tables for the evening and there was a lot of banging and clashing of cutlery.
Apart from this - a great restaurant!

Went there with a 4 pals on Saturday night. Ordered a set menu for two x 2. Food came out and it was average at best, but the quantities were shocking. We noticed the couple sat next to us ordered the same set menu but for 2, and were receiving the same amount of food as us! We thought there must be a mistake and they probably thought we wanted the set menu for 2 to share between 4 of us. When the bill came for £80 instead of £40 we decided to discuss with the manager who was very dismissive and assured us we had received DOUBLE what the couple beside. We argued this and his defence was that the plates our food had come out on were bigger. He tried to prove it by showing us the size difference of the plates. They were probably 10% bigger at best - we had paid double! Don't go if you care about value for money - rip off!
