Visited for my wife's birthday and we were made to feel very special throughout. The Manager Catherine and our waitress Jan were excellent, outstanding attention to detail and flawless service. Oh and the food was lovely too. Thank you very, very much.

Went for a meal to celebrate a special birthday for my niece. Staff especially Danny were extremely helpful to hide some little surprises for her. Starters were nice but disappointed in slow cooked rib of beef, no flavour. Lots of choice , atmosphere nice.
