Having been here on a previous trip, decided to try it again. Once again, the staff are friendly and obliging especially in regards to the junior member of the party. Food is reasonably priced and excellent quality. Service was quick and efficient. Beer was cold.

The food here is cheap but the quality is amazing. Large servings and the menu changes regularly. My only disappointment last time we went was that the salmon fettuccine has been replaced it was the best I have ever had.

Stopped here for lunch with my family, the staff could not have been more friendly. The food was fantastic and even though we were told there was quite a wait for the food they had our child's meal made up first so he could eat. Will definitely come back when we are in the area.
