Prices are good. Limited menu, tasted good but real basic. Service was average and a bit slow for the amount of people that were there.

Work dinner that I won't forget in a hurry! The food was first class and the service very friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable. Very busy, so definitely book. Not for dining on a budget, but you 100% get what you pay for and more. FANTASTIC........
