Excellent food with good friendly service. Good foods reasonable prices
Only slight moan is cost of beer, £5 a pint for Heineken is excessive!

Excellent food and service as always. Only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the prices. The prices were staggeringly higher than usual. COVID maybe the reason but still, worth going and we will go back.

The good was delicious and lots of gluten free options. The restaurant was cold though which did impact our visit unfortunately. It was very quiet which may be a result of the food being very expensive for the location.

Everything was lovely except the desserts. It was supposed to have been a cheesecake but was in a glass. It had the consistency of yogurt. It hadn’t set. After complaining about it and handing it back we were offered an alternative. However, we chose not to. This didn’t stop us being charged until we complained. Thought it was a bit cheeky.

Nice friendly place.
Efficient staff, service very good.
The issue we had was that the cheese used in the macaroni was off. There was a pungent smell and the taste was vile. (Inedible)
Feel this should have been picked up by the chef before it was served.
On the plus side the waiter was very quick to apologise and didn’t charge us.
A shame as first time we had visited, good first impression, shame about the food.
