Been here only once and it's great ambience and the food worth the wait. Our party was 10 and the dinner arrived all at the same time.

Recently had lunch here. Bright with amazing decor, but very noisy and service very slow. The food was good but waiting 40 minutes was too long.

Regularly have Sunday lunch there. Can be very busy so it pays to book. Very good menu to cover most taste. Interesting old movie decoration. Family friendly with very helpful staff.
