I chose the enormous... More

Been here a few times the service is always good, the only down side for me is that the batter is at times too thick and can be under cooked. As this is a hit and miss issue maybe it comes down to different fryers. The restaurant is always clean and the staff helpful and polite, visited a few weeks... More

Visited with husband for a quick tasty meal. As usual not disappointed. The Seniors meal deal is excellent value and as always the service is faultless. Caters for all groups and even at busy times there is never too long to wait.
