“Nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Came here for dinner one night and had never been here before and it was good. It was a Saturday night and the place was about 75% full we had a nice table by the window and the waitress then took our drinks order which came up very quickly we were the given the food menus and waitress did keep asking if we were ready to order which was not good. But when the food came it was great nice and fresh good size portions I had the pork belly which was super the wine menu is good and the service was good after we had ordered and will go back again as it is a very nice restaurant to eat in .They also gave us two free glasses of amaretto at the end

“Good food, good atmosphere, good service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Visiting with friends and family, we were welcomed cordially and seated quickly at a nicely dressed table. Menus were speedily provided. The food was fresh and served prettily on unusual plates and was hot and tasty. The only reason we didn't score a 5 was the portion sizes were a bit small for the men guests in our party but overall we will definitely go back.

“Ideal place for a large group”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

About 20+ of us went from work for drinks and a 3 course meal on Sunday
We started off the evening at the bar and then proceeded to sit down for dinner, For my first course I had the calamari which was nice dipped into chili sauce, my main course was the roast beef which was OK apart from the Yorkshire pudding which was rather flat and soggy not at all nice to be truthful, for dessert I had the sticky toffee pudding which was also ok
The service was good as there was many of us and they managed to keep up
The decor is plain and simple nothing fancy, looks better online
If your looking for a venue to host a good night for a large group and not to fussy then this place will do the job, it was good but not exceptional
