Not the best experience, went out for dinner here with partner and family.. Overpriced but worst of all... We ordered the pork and crackling.. Nothing about the crackling crackled whatsoever. It was a blob of juicy fat, disgusting..More

Rekindling old memories, was not the case. Very plain and boring menu with photos of the food that do it no justice at all, the atmosphere just wasn't there either. Very friendly staff though.

We went twice and it was much better the first time. It is a very busy restaurant and you need to book a table. The food is family orientated and our kids loved it.
