Always busy so worth ringing ahead! This place deserves the reputation it has. The staff are friendly, always good for a chat but also discrete when necessary. The food is divine and never ceases to be enjoyed by us. Also great for a take away!

Very friendly staff, value for money and even takes the Tastecard (phone and book first). You can expect the normal full menu and some specialities and if you want something a big... More
