We were taken to this restaurant by a friend, who knew it well. The choice & quality of the food was very good. My wife is gluten-free, & although the menu didn't show many GF options, our waiter was really helpful in checking with the chef what possible alternatives he could offer. We therefore were able to have a really... More

I recently had lunch here and it was spot on. We both had club sandwiches with sweet potato fries and salad, but the menu is varied and caters for everyone. The portions were generous and the food was well made and tasty. The staff are friendly and it is extremely good value.

The service was good, staff friendly, the ambience of the building worked, with just the right level of informality and plenty of space to give it an airy feel, there was a wide range of choice on the menu(s) and the food was spot-on and sensibly priced. Would def go back again when next in Jersey.

This place is not sophisticated and doesn't pretend to be. However, the food is good, portions are generous and it is really good value. We stopped here once for a drink and a sharing platter for lunch and then again during the evening. Both times the place was busy which is a good recommendation. We had the set meal which... More

Visited here for dinner with my parents who are regulars here (but may not be any longer). Started out fine with prompt and polite service, but it slid downhill faster than a sumo wrestler on a ski slope. We waited an hour for the starter, and after an hour, we were told that our starter choice was unavailable. Then shortly... More

My husband & I have been here many times for Sunday lunch & cannot fault the place. The food is always excellent, well presented & a fabulous choice of dishes. All the staff are really helpful & the service is great, cannot fault the place. Highly recommend for couples, families & special occasions for parties as the place is huge
