Clean. Great service, good food. The price is reasonable was not very expensive. A great place for catch up and get together. Very happy! Certainly will come again.
The staff were friendly and the food was nice and tasty the only disappointment was the banana fritter, the nana was not ripe enough it was tasteless but other than that all was good
We had a very good Peeking Duck, which is our usual. Good wine list. Prices are starting to creep up though. Overall, the quality remains very good.
