Excellent service, food and atmosphere. I will eat here again. Food is perpared on site, a real refeshing change from the perpared stuff of the chains. It really felt like the kitchen enjoyed making our food that was served. Very good!

I never write reviews for restaurants but I felt I had to after this experience. Never in my life have I had such awful food. Potatoes were undercooked, food was lacking flavour, service was slow and sub-par. Decor is very minimal and is lacking the...More
