When we arrived at the car park we realised the restaurant was busy. However, whilst we looked at the menu and ordered our food, we did not long to wait to be shown to our table.Excellent value. 8.50 each for three courses.

The atmosphere in this place is very good. Although there were 200 people in the restaurant the service was incredible. Great menus, 3 course and Al- A- Carte. The staff were very polite. Even table cloths on the tables.
