    Booked in advance, restaurant not busy, waited a while to order food, even longer for food to arrive, limited choice on menu, don’t do pizzas except weekends Waited so long for option of desert we gave up, no atmosphere in restaurant, food and service nothing to get excited about . So many other options in town

    Despite booking well in advance there was no table pre-allocated for us, so we ended up cramped up in a corner. One waitress was cheerful and attentive, the other clearly didn't want to be there. The food was very good but perhaps a little over-priced. All in all an enjoyable meal.

    Me and my family had a fantastic time here yesterday for a birthday lunch. The food was exceptionally good and the service was relaxed but efficient. They were great with our dogs too.
