Visited before on a few occasions, we were in on a Sunday night there was a large table just leaving so we decided to eat here, the service was slow to say the least, the starter was good but lacked flavour the mains both pasta dishes were disappointing, not sure that we would rush back after this average meal.

Booked here for our anniversary. We had been before but not for nearly a year. Food and Service were just as good as we remembered. Very friendly and excellent food. Can't recommended it highly enough.
