We ate here a couple of times for lunch and once for dinner. The food and service were good. Not so keen on the atmosphere at night as was quite dark and dismal but the food was good.

We had a fantastic meal at this restaurant. We went for the Roast Night. Not a lot of choice, but enough options to suit all our party.
