Not a bad place if you are looking for something a little bit different, but not really for me, service was ok

Visited on strength of Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed, managed to squeeze in with no booking on a Saturday night, possibly quite lucky. The tables are packed in, but service is still prompt, the only problem was that a few dishes had run out...More
