Came here on Thursday, the service was quick and the waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and there were people coming in for a takeaway and some other tables in. Good and busy little restaurant, reasonable prices too

Stumbled across the restaurant searching for gluten free options that are open late. In this small community that's almost impossible to find. This restaurant was amazing. We were greeted by and served by who I believed to be the owner. The service was fantastic but...More
