Staff were very friendly, and went out of their way to check gluten free option. I had the rack of ribs, absolutely superb, cooked to perfection. My husband had the Buttered chicken curry, also superb. This place never disappoints.

Great location and menu, friendly staff but service was a little hit and miss, especially given how quiet the restaurant was. We had three courses, and would definitely recommend the fish platter as a sharing dish between two as a main. Booked as a birthday meal, so would have been a nice gesture to have a mini dessert or acknowledgment of the birthday visit.

The food is good and a well stocked bar. The problem here has always originated in the kitchen as service for food suffers. Too slow. Facility is bright n clean. Views are spectacular but as I say its a long wait for food.

Stopped here for a drink on a rainy evening. It's very nice, dog friendly with some tasty vegan options and a very good selection of drinks. Warm and cosy too. Just what we needed.

We went last night. There were 4 of us. 2 ordered curry 1 ordered mussels and 1 the tomahawk chop. The curry's came out and they had got halfway through eating it and 15 mins later the other 2 meals came our. No apology for the delay and no check back. We had to ask for the table to be cleared. It wasn't busy. We noticed the 2 curries didn't get the salad that was on the menu. When asked the waitress just said the chef said it was a printing error! The food was really nice the service not so great.
