The restaurant was full which speaks for itself, good choice of food at reasonable prices. First time we have eaten here but will certainly not be the last. Good service from friendly staff. Overall very good and well worth visiting.

As a local, I like to support businesses in the winter months when there are no tourists here. Got here just after 9pm on a Saturday, when the place was still busy to be told we could only eat if we skipped the starters and...More
