Went with colleagues on a Thursday night, very friendly staff in a large bar. Food was ok, squid starter very nice, fish strips nice and peppery but served on noodles which were wet and average, duck a tad fatty.

Sunday evening family birthday meal. Good beer cocktails and food. Staff were attentive but not overbearing. Meals were well presented and really tasty. Definitely deserves a higher rating than it currently has.
