Visited twice during a recent visit. First time was on a Wednesday when the special was a huge rack of ribs for two. Excellent value. Good menu, draft beer and selection of wines. Friendly service, well presented and tasty food served in a clean environment.

Did you add a + sign before keying the phone number if you're calling from overseas? I just tried dialing & the staff responded my call. Try again, & all the best.
