We came across this place whilst out shopping and though it was a must. The food was excellent. My only gripe is that they automatically added 10% service charge to the bill. I would of left that as a tip anyway but feel you have...More

Popped in for a lunch and went for the tapas deal £9.99 for 3 dishes. The menu is good and so was the food, I loved the vegetable casserole. The service was good and it was reasonably priced. I would return here.
