Wonderful staff, large portions, great food. The potato skin is a meal all by itself. The pork roast had a nice crackling, the Veggies are good, the carrots and sweet potatoes were the best.

It wasn't very busy at the time we went in so service was fast, friendly and efficient. The food we ordered couldn't be faulted in any way. So I would visit again and would recommend it going by my visit there.

Went here with my husband for dinner and the food was unreal. Had the best philly cheesesteak and I've had them in Philly!! Asked for a strawberry daiquiri mocktail as I'm pregnant and it was fantastic. Best part of our visit.
