Taking my daughter out for a celebratory pizza and Pizza Express said no room, so saw this little place down the road and thought we’d give it a try. It was lovely and we agreed it was probably a nicer, quieter experience than our original...More

From the outside you may think this restaurant is one to pass by, DON'T!. They serve delicious food and the staff are friendly and helpful. This is one book NOT to be judged by the cover.

What a little gem. As others have said, ignore the uninspiring outside and venture in. I would have walked past if I had not Googled it first, as it looks more like a tired takeaway than a restaurant, but I would then have missed a...More

Don't judge this book by the cover! Whilst this charming restuarant does not seem enticing on the outside, you will receive great food and a friendly welcome. We were a party of 8 and had booked a table but had walked by several times before...More
