A relative took 6 of us for the £10 3 course meal available from 12 until 4pm on Sundays. It was excellent value, A good choice of food which was very tasty with generous portions. The service was friendly and efficient.Difficult to"click" for "cheap eats" or "mid range" as it would depend on the day/time of a visit.

One of the best restaurants I have eaten in. Food is unbelievable and hard to believe it doesn't cost a small fortune. Staff really helpful and a lovely atmosphere overall. Always enjoy going back - book a table early!

Even better they have a special set menu, only £11 for 3 courses throughout January and the menu is one of the best I have seen. Such a variety of dishes and all sound... More

Waitress was very helpful when there was no mussels and recommended Piri Piri prawns. I said I don't do spicy so said could do without spice. They were delicious. We had the lamb with Feta. it was so tender and specially liked the minted onion salad.

Went for some early Christmas celebrations. The Christmas menu has lots of choice and good value too. Everyone's food was coming out and the portions were huge, then came my duck...it was tiny. The duck itself was a good size, but it came with 5 tiny pieces of cubed potato and also about 5 peas. It tasted delicious but it... More

Superb, very enjoyable, pasta was cooked to perfection, good friendly service, takes a lot to impress a chef, especially one that Italian is his forte.

Exceptionally good food in a really warm atmospheric setting. The only (very slight) moan I would have is that I had to ask for a spoon with my pasta and I was given a large serving spoon. This didn't spoil what was a lovely dinner though.
