Ate here on a Monday night with 3 small children. Was quite busy but children were made to feel welcome with crayons and hi fives. Delicious food, especially chips, great value children's menu and good service.

My husband and I come here often for a meal and drinks. Never have we had to complain about the food or service. We think it a great price too!
