We came at lunch time for a lovely meal with our daughter and grandchildren. Service was quick, food was delicious. Enjoyed 150g peppered steak with chips and vegetables. Could have done with a bit more sauce. Desert chosen was fresh strawberries and cream!

I would say the place is OK, but I don´t understand why it is too crowed. The service is poor and the food is OK, nothing extraordinary. I would defenetly say it overrated! And if you go with no reservation you need to waitttttttt.
