Never had a bad meal/experience here. After a break of probably a year, two of us visited last week...Tuesday night 5:40pm. Showed to a table. Nice and quiet as not many there that early. Our order was taken 5:45pm + drinks order. By 6:45, one hour later, tables around us had filled up and they had their meals! Called Maitre... More

Gorgeous surroundings, reasonably priced and good value for money. Congratulations to management - what an amazing team you have there. Looking forward to going back when... More

We took the old folks here for lunch on a Saturday. We were short on time. However, the wait staff were very happy to help sort us out and speed things along for us on this occasion. The food was "pub grub" as was expected. I enjoyed my fish and chips with salad. We would go back again if we... More

First waitress who served us upon entry told us that our table was right next to the band that was playing that night. No one told me there was a band next to our table when I booked it - I'd asked for one close to the big screen to watch the Chiefs game. Waitress didn't really give a hoot... More

Had a final lunch with the folks before heading overseas. Place was fairly busy but service was prompt and the food faultless. I had the corn fritters to start with and they were a big serving!
