This reviewer is malicious and I won’t waste much time on this slanderous review which shouldn’t be allowed. All our customers many who we regard as friends know who we are don’t have those views.

Thanks Ashley for your nice comments. I'm sorry to say you're in the minority when it comes to missing velvet flock wall paper as its seen as outdated but I understand your point. Thanks again.

Great food. Good service. Been here a few times now since moving to the area. No complaints so far. Not much space inside the restaurant as it is small and we were lucky to get a seat. Defo advise to book table in advance.

We have recently dined in the restaurant and also this week collected a takeaway and on both occasions the good was of a very high standard indeed. Pompadoms were crisp and freshly cooked, lamb full of flavour and faultlessly tender, chicken was perfectly cooked too...More
