We didn't pre book a table but got seated quickly and also received prompt service with a smile from the lovely waitress Alison 👍🏼I had prawn cocktail and penne arrabiata with king prawns and jalapeño it was lovely so I'd definitely recommend eating here

It would depend on the time of day, I was there early evening and did not have to book but later may require a booking, best idea would be to phone and ask.
