Ate here with two small children. They were very happy with their choices my food was not too bad either..one point I would make is.. If you choose to fill every inch of space with memorabilia your' housekeeping needs to be spot on..

Food is excellent, great menu choice, service is good and surroundings quirky. Portions are big so worth bearing in mind if thinking about having a starter. Excellent value for money. Definitely worth a visit.

Choice is vast, food is wonderful, service is great and nice environments so 5 stars for that! Only gave it 3 as no WiFi access for customers, so if you need to check emails or browse the web over lunch with friends or business clients, it's not the place to go. There is a WiFi connection but not for customers!!
