This is a very nice restaurant with really excellent food and the staff could not have been more helpful. I have very specific dietary requirements and the staff did their utmost to accommodate, which isn't easy. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Average food at above average prices. Triple cooked chips, really??? How about uncooked chips! Shocking service, glasses empty and the young waitresses too busy gossiping at the counter rather than have any customer awareness. Go somewhere else, there's loads of better places to choose from.
