I booked a table for my family (7 of us and a small baby). Not only was I given a high chair for the small child but it was perfect for family’s and such a lovely vibe to whole place. The waiting staff and serving staff were soo attentive and really were a pleasure. The food was really tasty and the whole experience just made what was a special birthday even nicer. What a lovely experience and I would recommend anyone to go.

I was very impressed with the restaurant, although very busy the service was excellent and the food good. It was a good way to spend Boxing Day relaxing with the family after all the hard work of Christmas.

We rally enjoyed our dinner last night, food was really good, delicious actually! staff very polite and attemptive to us, wine was tasty. Only thing we didnt enjoy was the crowd of children who were sitting near by us and were stamping, crawling on the floor and shouting . Honestly , that was not nice. I think staff should have said something to the parents as we wanted to have some relaxing time but it was quite disturbing having this just so close to our table . I don t think is acceptable in fact. But i d like to go back only i hope they wont allow children after a certain time like they do in other pubs as i don t think its fair to have to listen to children noise on a night out with your partner Simona

Hi Simona, thank you for your feedback. We have a lot of drama's dealing with parents who are not present with looking after their children. Just the other week when we asked a table to ask their children to keep the noise down we we're shouted at and told we shoudln't allow children if we cannot handle the noise. It is an on going battle to try and keep a lovely enviroment for everyone. We do have a cut off time for children, unfortunately 4.30pm in the day is not it. I hope you do visit again and hopefully we will have parents who like to parent their children. We're glad you enjoyed your meal. All the best, Heath

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had a nice table at the front and were made very welcome. Most of us had pre ordered our meals from the Christmas menu, but we asked to change a few meals on arrival and there were no problems to do so. You were also very accommodating with two late arrivals. Thank you, we had a great experience!
