I really enjoy everything, the environment was good, soft and chilled music, very family friendly place, beautiful place if u want to go on a date. The food is delicious, a bit pricey but was well worth it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

The food was tasty, but the brown stew chicken was a bit small. The curry chicken quantity was very good. The cocktails were excellent on this occasion. The only downfall was the accuracy of the bill which was immediately rectified. Thanks we enjoyed the experience on this visit.

Lovely friendly staff disappointed we had to book separate tables as we were a group of 9. Food was nice fruity rum punch was perfect! Little pricey but still had a good evening. Didn’t know there was a DJ in the evening so we missed out as was setting up when we left but still fab
