    A lovely friendly service, and popular, though clearly stretched on a Sunday evening with only one member of staff doing everything! Great cocktails and good wine, but no draught beers if that’s for you. Fish platter delicious as was the nachos with chilli, good to share. Burrito and fajitas were tasty and generous. Chorizo and chicken skewers with salad were fresh and generous. Some nice bread would have completed it. No room for dessert sadly.
