Did one of their early dinner set menu specials which was really delicious and great value for money. Salmon was just a tad more done than I would have liked, but all round fantastic dinner. Would definitely eat here again.

Good atmosphere with good food. Service was ok. The place looks nice and good location on Bank Street. It was worth for money, The website does not work though. However, we enjoyed the healthy food they serve. I would recommend this place.

If I remember correctly it was between £18-£23, not cheap but worth it in my opinion. The food is very nice and the staff are helpful and friendly.
