The food here is brilliant and well priced as well. Love the fact that they will do a takeaway for you (as long as they are not too busy). Always need to book at the weekend

My family are regulars here. Good food, good service and not overly priced. What's not to like. One niggle.The bill is expressed under the headings ,FOOD and DRINK which makes it impossible to categorise what you've been charged for. Bit naughty.
