    Booked for a family birthday, 5 adults and a 10-year old. Food was all lovely, fish sharing starter in particular went down very well and almost all of the Sunday menu was available gluten-free for my mother-in-law which is no the norm! Staff were friendly and helpful and service was quick. Fairly busy but not too noisy, will definitely be back.

    Menu had nothing special on it for the prices. Carrot and curry soup was just that liquidised carrot with curry powder added.

    Every item we chose was beautifully prepared and presented; the welcome felt sincere and service was timely and efficient, professional and unobtrusive. The only improvement might be to have a little more salad garnish with the (otherwise superb) seafood sharing platter starter and a slightly larger piece of (delicious) focaccia with the (also delicious) saganaki prawn main. Regretfully, we did not have room for dessert!

    The menu was safe, allergies were thoughtfully considered. We all chose differently and were all pleased with the dishes we were served. Service was jolly and fun

    Waitress laugh was a tad to loud, almost a shrill. But other than that all the guest on our table said it was a lovely place with great food
