The quirky former tram ticket office restaurant is an old established favourite. The food is great and the staff are always friendly and attentive

We went for dinner on Friday night. The restaurant was really busy and they coped well. Tables are quite close together which just adds to the buzz and atmosphere. Service was efficient and friendly and the food was rustic and delicious.
