Called for the first time and had a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and the staff so friendly. The place was spotless too. Wished we lived closer. Don't hesitate-get yourself there. It is well worth seeking out.

There is parking directly across from the restaurant that is for an hour only & then stops at 6pm so is fine after this. There is also a pay & display behind the restaurant across the dual carriageway. Hope the info helps 😁
