Our waitress couldn't do enough for us. She was rushed off her feet but still made us feel special. My husband as always was he's usual fussy self but his special requests were no problem. He thoroughly enjoyed his plain cheese stuffed chicken. 5*. Would recommend to anyone.

The restaurant is a lively place, fully stocked with locals and liquors. The staff are really friendly, the food was great-we started with an artisanal cheese plate, followed by steak and chicken dishes and we split a chocolate ganache dessert.

We popped in for a drink here and it's very casual and simple decor with a lot of wood. We sat at the bar to have a drink - was surprised to see the bar maid filling a wine glass then cleaning it with their fingers and then with the dirty dishcloth and then tea towel. Menu looked good but... More

The staff were extremely accommodating to our rowdy group and were very attentive to our needs. The food and drink orders were taken quickly and everyone commented on how fresh and... More

Enjoyed a beautiful meal in this warm & cosy restaurant/bar with my husband. We both had fillet stake which was cooked to perfection. Our waitress Shannon was fantastic- nothing was too much trouble for her. Music was starting up as we finished our meal so decided to stay - glad we did had a great night out. Lovely we'll run...

Strange layout of the bar & restaurant, dining area reminds one of boarding school dining tables , dark & dreary & in need of a refurb. Food was marginally better than last time but getting a drink from the bar was impossible as I waited over 20 mins to be served but I was invisible and only "locals" were being... More
