Be aware that they stop serving quite early for a restaurant. Luckily we had been told this so we didn't miss our evening food. The staff were polite and the food delicious.

Lovely restaurant, modern and friendly staff. Food was served really quickly and well presented. We had battered haddock which was greasy. Onion rings were raw and chunky chips were also under cooked. Potentially lovely place to come for lunch if the food is prepared properly
