    Excellent food and excellent service we dined last night before the 7:30 showing of ‘Cilla’.
    From the very first phone call to enquire Steve the manager pulled out all the stops from arranging our booking for 14 at such short notice to making our table look extra special for my mother in laws 80th Birthday .

    Highly recommended
