    Reliably good food!

    The food was very good, as always. The beef olives were really filling on a cold night - just the job! Pretty expensive for a large glass of wine but that's true of so many restaurants and the 5pm deal made the food good value.

    First Visit Certainly Not The Last

    This was the first time we had been to this place to eat. It's lovely inside, very modern and spacious. The staff are all really nice, attentive but not in your face every few minutes which is great. The food was gorgeous, we shared the whole roast chicken, 3 sides, and dessert, with tea and coffee included. Portions were ideal and very well presented. Would have been more than happy to pay full price for this but was given the voucher as a gift. Will definitely return.
