A good place to have a romantic supper. Food is also excellent. On a Sunday afternoon in the winter it is the perfect spot to have a bottle of red wine with chateau briand..especially with your partner.

My partner had the Kudu Loin with Monkey Gland Sauce and he said it was absolutely delicious. I had the creamy chicken pasta and family had calamari. We were all very pleased with our meal. Thanks again guys! ☝🏼

The service and food were outstanding. The fillet steak in particular was one of the best I've ever had. What is a bit off putting is the hideous brown carpet and the dimly lit interior which is rather dated. If you can look past these...More
