A bit apprehensive going last night as under new management.soon as we walked through the door apprehension had gone. Lovely friendly welcome, great service and food was fab. We had the early bird special 3 courses for £8.95 good selection to choose from and food was delicious. Already booked for this Saturday for partners birthday.

We were made to feel very welcome by friendly, attentive staff. We were impressed by the nice variety on the menu. The food came out piping hot and I was really impressed with my pizza.

My partner had his 70th birthday dinner and whereas the staff where friendly, they weren't very attentive. I noticed that we weren't the only people having the same problem. Apart from this, the food was good.
