Called last Sunday with the family and had a great lunch sat out on the patio. Food and service were impeccable and the main waiter who looked after was very friendly. Recommend this place to anyone.

The restaurant is a little out of the way on a golf course. It's pleasant inside with friendly staff. I was a bit unimpressed with the menu (I mean the selections available)but have to say the food was excellent and very good value.
