Great food, service was good with courteous staff who did not rush you to make your choice or leave after paying the bill like so many other places. Pleasant surroundings and very definitely worth a visit.

Average standard of food, super slow service. We had to ask someone to take our order then food took 45mins to arrive. Very family friendly & busy but not for us!More
