    We had the beef Sunday Roast, and although tasty the meat was quite tough and the roast potatoes very dry. My friend and I did still enjoy the experience and the atmosphere and waiter made up for any disappointment. I would still go there again but maybe not have the roast dinner.

    Had the lunch offer which is good value at £20 for 2 courses. Steak was a little gristly but apart from that everything else was good. We liked the ambience and service was friendly, staff very attentive. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return.
