First visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Starters were huge and really tasty. Mains were excellent portion sizes too and very flavoursome. Staff were friendly and happy to help. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Would definately return.

This was my second visit in a month, with two different groups of people. Unfortunately, neither occasion was particularly positive and generally for the same reason. I had hopes that the food would be exceptional given the length of years this place has been open...More
