    We went as a family group of 9 people (children included). The reception was good. The food was excellent, the service was spot on and the overall experience was very good.

    We always enjoy visiting this establishment. We mainly come here for drinks but for special occasions we head hear. Excellent service and lovely friendly helpful staff. The only disappoint we had was we were looking forward to one of the desserts that is not usually on other menus but when it arrived it definitely wasn’t as per the description and then we found out they were bought in. Manager rectified situation so we were happy.

    The food was nice. Just that we had to ask a few times for a door to be opened in the restaurant as it was very hot. And as for a bottle of water which the waitress forgot to give us and steak knifes which we had to ask for.
