Throughly enjoyed my solo dinner!! It was a busy night, but the service was impressively quick. Good tasting food. Sensible portion sizes. Good ambience. Only minor criticism was that the prawns were lacking in texture.

Well we always supported the shaman as our local Indian. But had a takeaway the person who took order over phone was rude. We collected our food which was warm and we live literally yards away. Such a disappointment.
