I had a lovely meal here with a friend in January. We had starters, mains, dessert & coffee. The food was great, really delicious. The service was also great. Very nice staff. I'd highly recommend it BUT....oh my goodness will ye please turn on the heat!! It was so cold in there!!!!! FREEZING!!!!!

Had dinner here last night with my husband and two adult children. We all had different mains and they were all really good. I had the sirloin steak and it was one of the best steaks I have eaten. Was really surprised when I read the negative reviews as I have eaten here lots of times and have always found... More

We visited for our anniversary and really enjoyed our food. The portions are huge and everything tasted great. Staff were nice and friendly. However...we visited around 7pm on a Sunday (and I understand it's a family restaurant) but it was so loud with children screaming and shouting. We were annoyed that our conversation was drowned out by Frozen on a... More

Second time here, first time the food was ok, this time we should have left when the the waitress, who we nicknamed 'waitless', ignored us for 15 minutes. With only 5 tables occupied, there was no excuse for the delays in taking orders, serving drinks and to top it all, two main courses were incorrect! When we complained we got... More

Have had quite a few meals here over the last number of years some good some poor. Went with a group of 5 friends, the young waitress took our drinks order. 3 of our party ordered a more expensive bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from the wine list. As we were chatting and didn't take much notice when she returned with... More

Ate here with friends recently. We would regularly eat here but we won't be returning unless standards improve. Starters were good except one of our party had to stare at her food sitting going cold in the window while we ate ours. Takeaways were being seen to so her food was ignored. Mains were vile, pizza was barely cooked and... More

Had a really good meal here last night. I had spinach tagliatelli in a wonderful mushroom sauce and my other half had the most delicious steak, both washed down with a very tasty Pino Grigio. The staff were rushed off their feet, but the service was excellent. Lovely atmosphere. Will definitely go again.

Terrible service. Waiting 30-40 minutes between courses on a Friday night. Wine of extremely poor quality(ederra 2013), not even bread to keep is fed. They seem to be juggling the takeaway with the sit in and its working out very badly. I would not advise going here as they seem profit oriented and are not aiming to make it an... More
