5 of us came for Saturday lunch before a trip to the cinema. Only me had been before, A Christmas meal a few weeks ago, which was so good I recommended going again. We were all super happy with the extensive menu, friendly staff, ambience and decor, the food and also the portion size. We could not fault anything. Thank you so much x

Lovely food, great place. Shame about the table next to us that were quite loud and liked to swear while the rest of the place was full of kids. No-ones fault but the rowdy family. Didn't spoil it though. Staff were very friendly and polite. We always come back here, love it.
