About Restaurant at The Place
This was an excellent Venue for our get together for my Sisters birthday. The staff were so attentive at all times, couldn't do enough for us. The food was also excellent, all five of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and all hope to return again soon.
Fast and friendly service, great food and excellent value for money. Would certainly recommend and will go back.
