Despite the large numbers our food came out pretty well all together and was to a good standard. I must pay particular attention to my mixed grill which was...

Always fairly reliable and excellent staff service. This is a 3 star place and the prices are about right. We visit here often and it delivers what you would expect; sometimes it surpasses expectations, sometimes it is under par. Not somewhere to go for a romantic meal, but if you fancy a decent portion this is the place.
