Arrived with my family on a Tuesday and we had a great time. The food was well cooked and came promptly though it's true it's expensive I'd say the quality makes up for it. We've come before and enjoyed it just as much this time....More

Best to go on-line and review menu which I know changes daily as they source their ingredients locally according to the season. Always worth a ring and find out what 'specials' they have on the day - ask for Chris or... More
