    Very friendly restaurant. Good menu. The food is cooked from fresh and is excellent. We had mushroom and basil soup and the surf and turf salad for starters, both very tasty and good size portions. For the main course we had chicken millanaise and the roast vegetable salad, again both tasty and good portions. "

    Just had a very nice meal here with my husband and daughter. They had the pulled pork Burgers and I had a Scallop dish, all were wonderful and tasty. The desserts are so big we had to share them but WOW the taste was great (I had the Fresh fruit Pavlova and my husband had the Banana Fried in a pancake batter with cream and ice cream) Lovely atmosphere and great decoration all over the restaurant. Will go back there soon and hopefully take other members of the family. "

    We enjoyed a brilliant family meal here. Quirky fun decor with useful advice everywhere - eat your greens, chew with your mouth closed and many others. Food was delicious - clean plates all round, and the service friendly and attentive. Only criticism is that when we popped in to have some lunch the following day they were too busy to fit us in :) "
