Great hosts great food surprisingly affordable. Why wouldn't you go out here for dinner! We had a group of 8 and were celebrating a birthday. we all left happy and satisfied.
It was great fun and easy with kids. The staff were really good and attentive, we did not have to wait long for food or drinks. We will be going back
Food was tasty and well presented with generous portions. The staff were cheerful and happy to help although we did strike them on a night where they appeared to be understaffed.
