We took up a voucher offer to visit this property. We were limited to the 'set' menu but the options were adequate to suit most diners. The 'crab' cake entrée was very enjoyable, my partner's lamb shank was very good as well. My 'sirloin' steak wasn't - it wasn't sirloin, but was beef I think. It was thin and there... More

We dined here for a second time and everything was as good as the first visit. Had an overseas visitor with us who was also really impressed with the yummy food. Staff are great and super friendly. Added bonus of lots of parking. Would definitely recommend and we will be back.

It was our 10 year anniversary yesterday and we decided to go and have a quiet drink somewhere to look for a well priced restaurant with great looking food and positive reviews. We saw the sign for "The Mediterranean" (the same one we've driven past twice a day for 2 years) and thought, "Let's have a drink there, it's as... More

Somewhat out on its own but worth making the effort to get to. The food is good and there's a nice range of beer, cider and wine. The staff are very friendly and they're working hard to try different things. Currently have live music on Sunday afternoons. They're open Xmas Day too!

We used to go here a few years ago but got fed up with the old owner. Friends invited us along and we thought we'd give it another go, not knowing it had changed hands. What a difference! The food is good, it always did good 'skewers' which are still good but my wife had prawns and friend had the... More
