I had a groupon voucher and was a bit nervous about the bad comments, but my experience was great. Staff were very friendly, food was lovely. Got the mixed starter which were ok, but had the cajan salmon which was very tasty. Would definitely return.

Great value especially the early bird menu and the staff are very attentive and friendly. I had the scampi for starter and the chicken for mains, very tasty and certainly did not leave hungry! Well worth a visit. I'll be back :)
