It was great to walk in and have my food allergies understood .The service was prompt, and I was served an excellent meal that was adapted from the standard menu. Nothing was too much trouble for my allergies.

Great value for money and lovely food. Service was very prompt, with friendly staff. A very enjoyable meal can recommend the fish and chips and the scampi.
