Had a pleasant evening with three mates on a golf trip. We all liked our choice of food and were pleased with the efficient service.

The staff here make you most welcome and the food is of a consistent high quality. The steaks are particularly good. A lovely place to go.

Enjoyable experience for 7 of us (so we visited twice). Nice food and well priced. I particularly enjoyed the service and recommend this restaurant for couples or large groups.... or even solo!
