    The service was professional, the waitresses were very friendly and helpful, especially in regards to catering to my sister's allergies, the food arrived at our table quickly and was quite tasty.

    Food was cooked quickly and looked amazing, some food tasted ever so slightly bland but on the whole it was lovely. Staff lovely and polite and the set up looks great! Definitely makes a good restaurant for a date night.

    Cheap quality food, overpriced and over cooked. Chips were crispy yet dry, children’s salad was awful. Chicken wings come in a small pot with nowhere to put the bones, corncob’s were over cooked and dry.

    The restaurant was small. All the tables were too close together and the waitress kept kicking the back of my chair every time she walked past. The food was good but was just disappointed with the staff and the seating.

    I booked a table online but the staff were not expecting me. They found us a table within about 5-7 minutes.
