Had the early bird meal which was very tasty and we'll presented. Great value if you go early enough to get the special offer. Sometimes a little difficult to get waiters attention at busy times though but probably to be expected as it gets quite busy.

Myself and my family visited on Sunday for the happy hour lunch. It's pretty good, the surroundings are nice, the service decent and the happy hour is good value. I do prefer Molly's down the road though but that's just me.

I was really looking forward to eating here as it came recommended by a friend but it was a bit disappointing, I had the Peroni Battered Fish and Chips and thought the fish was very greasy, fishcake starter just ok, Husbands Mussel starter was lovely but his sea bass was a little bit over pan fried... all in all not...

Me and my partner went on impromptu visit to this restaurant and caught it during the 'happy hour' period. Two mains, a side, and 2 pints of soft drink came to less than £20 for this deal. Very reasonable, and very good food.

I have been a regular here since it opened and it's going downhill fast, which the ratings on here confirm. It's such a pity as it could be so easily fixed.
