Inexpensive wines which serve a variety of palettes. An attractive building that caters to large groups. Still interesting to pop in for a reasonable and quick tasting especially since it is conveniently just off the main road. Staff are helpful and pleasant.More

Smelly table. Had to get it wiped again but still smelly so i myself wiped. Waitress could open our bubbly. Salty foods. Dirty cutleries and cups. Can be improved better. Writing this for them to know so that they make a reasonable improvement.
