Lighting is very subdued, and cosy would describe the space for dining. The food was amazing. Took time to deliver as we arrived just after opening. Very tasty, and large portions. We will visit again but without the bickering children. Well recommended for a quality meal at a good price.

Another fantastic visit to this outstanding low key happy restaurant. The décor is American Diner style, and is homely. Angie, the proprietress, is always so welcoming even though we only visit a couple of times a year. The food is just wonderful, and always has been. I've been visiting this place for 25 years or so I guess. Huge portion... More

Booked a table and arrived 5 minutes early - no one came to greet us at the entrance and we ended up having to walk all the way down to the bar area to one young girl who looked at us very grumpily and just said "have you booked?" I don't think she was pleased to hear that we had... More

We pride our self on being a local, family... More

We had to eat at 6.30pm as this place was fully booked. Traditional Tex Mex, large portion sizes. The decor is quirky and fun.

We went to this restaurant last week for a family meal. The atmosphere was great and the staff were lovely and friendly, very professional ensuring all our needs were catered for. The food was excellent, portion sizes were very large from starters through to the desserts. We enjoyed a leisurely meal and I am sure we will be visiting again... More

Visited here with a few work colleagues. The restaurant is a little dated but the food was lovely! The portion sizes were large and great value for money! Need to book in advance for a peak visit as it becomes really busy!

Food was excellent and the portion size was more than enough.....really polite staff with a warm and friendly atmosphere....only thing is I think the furniture could do with updating.....but that didn't stop us enjoying a fantastic dinner....
