Stopped in for a lunch whilst passing through. After a dirty kids play area, over cooked food, terrible service we couldn’t wait to leave. Over priced for what you get. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Lovely restaurant with very good lamb dishes. Don’t be in too much of a hurry though: the food takes a while to be prepared, but is well worth the wait.
