We were given our menus by a delightful waitress who was at hand to advise... More

Felt like i was dining in a kindergarten, loads of kids running around making a racket. House wine was not nice & pasta dish not good, it had reheated chicken in it which is never good, it has a completely different taste to freshly cooked chicken. Won't be back

We were served by a pleasant and most helpful waitress, who... More

Firstly I will start with the positives; the staff are wonderful, very friendly and welcoming to everyone including children. Children's meals are decent value, quite a large size pizza with a drink of their choice and an icecream. As I wasn't particularly hungry going in there I just ordered the bruschetta 3 ways as my main it was tasty and... More
