    Excellent value for money

  • ((((* 27 July 2017 by Liz from DORCHESTER

    We arrived, were shown to our table and ordered our drinks quite quickly, these took a long time to come and with hindsight perhaps we ought to have got them at the bar before being shown to our table.
    Table was near the indoor play area which we thought would be noisy (not having small children of our own) but it was ok.
    We ordered our food when the drinks arrived but this took over 50 mins to arrive.
    Our waiter Teddy was friendly, attentive and professional. We were drinking Sauvignon wine which we were told had run out after only the first two glasses!
