My very most favourite restaurant! So glad we can return, lovely to see it’s pretty much the same staff too 😍
First meal out since lockdown 2 and First time eating in your restaurant. Nice friendly atmosphere felt very relaxed the minute we walked in staff were great and superb with the kids. The food was amazing all fresh and so much flavour and such a good choice to choose from. The nuttella brownie was to die for. Will definitely be back soon

Food and service were both great!
Came for a brunch with friends for the 1st time since before Christmas and it didn’t disappoint! The food and service was amazing and my vegan friend didn’t struggle for choice! Can’t wait for restrictions to lift so we can spend longer and squeeze in some cheesecake too!
