I have been to this restaurant since I was young and I am still bowled away by the service we receive every time we go! The food is second to none and anyone who has eaten there will know just how brilliant it is. I have been greeted by the same members of staff since I was young and they... More

Visited on New Year's Eve at 5, just as they were starting to get busy. Even though they were getting very busy and also had a very large party in the room behind the bar, everything flowed perfectly and there was no sign of confusions or stress. The food arrived on time and was piping hot. This is an excellent... More

Firstly I have to say the food was lovely. We went on 23/12/16 and the place was abut half full later in the evening but we still had to wait for over half an hour for our main course !!!! The main thing though and the reason I will never eat there again was the biased towards women, in fact... More

Fifteen of us booked to come here for NYE early in December and paid £5 per head deposit. When we arrived we were shown to two separate tables back to back which wasn't really the idea we had in mind. Anyway, we ordered drinks and food which as always was exceptional... apart from one of the children finding some plastic/cellophane... More

The waiters were all over the place for what i wouldnt consider to be that buisy of a night as the resteraunt was less than half full. The waiter at our table kept forgetting drinks and taking longer to come... More
