Great food, friendly helpful staff - what more could you want? We visited on our wedding anniversary and were made to feel very special. A cake was given at the end of our meal, which was very thoughtful. Certainly well worth visiting again.

Best service yet, (efficient and warm), non-greasy food and beautifully cooked, attention to detail, pleasant atmosphere. Stopped here spontaneously as the nicely lit restaurant allured us in. Will definitely go back for more and try a different tantalising dish!
