The Pork Pie ordered came to the table half frozen with ice crystals around it. How anyone could let it out of the kitchen is beyond me, Sent it back, promised a replacement. Replacement... More

Part of the Nicholson's group so we knew what to expect. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Ideal if you want a decent meal without any fuss.

Me and some mates decided to go in there for lunch despite it being a Saturday and very busy. We sat at a bar table and ordered food. Very impressed with service speed and gorgeous food. Just has had a refurbishment (March 17) so well worth a visit.
