    Nice place

    Had nice meal with friends from the early dinner menu which was good value at 2 courses for under £15. For those with gluten allergy there is a chicken and fish option or you can have the gluten free base or pasta but get charged additional £2 for it. Food was delicious but the restaurant seemed to have no record of my booking but were still able to find us a table.
