On Mondays and Tuesdays, the restaurant offers 2for1 on Fajitas and pizzas. We went for the Fajitas having had these before and enjoyed them. When the food arrived we were shocked to see that the '2 for 1' deal was actually the same size portion...More

Lovely evening with friends. Had the chilli & it was great. They have a selection of specials. All reasonably priced. For a place to eat in West Malling it is friendly and food is good value for money.
