    Enjoyable visit, the food was very good, I had the Cajun chicken ciabatta but I didn’t think it was very Cajun. I was expecting it to be cooked with a Cajun marinade on it, but it just seemed to be just plain grilled chicken. A little disappointing, but all the food was of good quality.

    Thankyou for a really lovely dining experience here. The food was amazing, the staff were friendly and very attentive. It was my daughter's birthday and they brought a choc brownie with some candles, nice touch. She loved it! Lovely space for families and it was very chilled and relaxed. This was a treat for us but we would definitely come back. Thankyou so much xx

    The noise level was excessive because there are no absorbent surfaces in the restaurant. Sound absorbing fads should be installed.

    We dine here regularly as a family. It’s easily the best local restaurant. We’ve tried most things on the menu. Our favourite is the lamb chops, this is an incredible dish, I would highly recommend it with a bottle of red. The place is very family oriented. The staff are very attentive and professional. I cannot fault the place and always look forward to coming back.
