We dined on New Year's Eve but it was surprisingly quiet. Extremely friendly staff and good quality food. Good ingredients cooked simply. It is very much a hotel restaurant so lacks a bit of atmosphere but we had a very enjoyable evening.

I was treated to an absolutely fabulous birthday treat and was made to feel like a queen for the evening. Our drinks kept flowing. Out starts spicy chicken lives was divine and our mains were out of this world. I had fillet steak and my...husband chops with veg. our desserts was divine . Overall i would definitely recommend the place. Our waiter was attentive to our needs and very charming advising us on how order our meat. Well done excellent service from you and the restaurant manager as well.More
