Haven't been for a few months but dropped in during the week for a quick dinner. I had the seafood pie. Very flavorsome and good sized meal. Food was served quickly and staff were attentive. Excellent value.

"Free Kids Meals Sunday, Monday & Tuesday nights" says the website. But unfortunately not honoured this evening (Sunday). + got charged for sauce we never received. Not a big deal itself, but combined with the above it ruined the experience :(

Depending on what your looking for and how many are going. But yes if it's a casual dinner, you would need to book though. Not sure about the cake but their service is great so just give them a call.
