Attentive service, friendly and efficient without being over-fussy! Delicious food, tender steak, really good chunky chips. Busy Saturday evening but no hassle. Always a safe eating place to take our visitors, as there is always something on the menu for everybody.

Good and friendly service, lovely food and nice atmosphere. Interesting food and the best fries I have had for a long time. If before 7pm 2 courses for £12 is amazing value. My only complaint would be the thudding bass music!!!
