Large choice of meals on menu. Food was excellent along with first rate service. Would recommend this restaurant. Unexpected bonus too, as we visited on Sunday before 7pm, received 20% off bill.

Had a fabulous meal on Saturday 19th August for my daughter's 30th birthday. The food was exceptional and the staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed the night and thank you all very much.

Excellent steak fajitas after an exhausting day at Alton Towers. Good location, easy to find parking lots (after 8:00 pm).
