We went there for a Sunday Night meal. Sadly we were very disappointed as the fish was overcooked and tasted like cardboard. We had heard good reports but will definitely not be going back. Service was poor and literally had to look for a waiter.

We had a lovely family dinner, great service, great food! Something for everyone on the menu, from steak to delicious pizza and even seafood. An asset for George.

Great service and food. Couldn't fault it. Didn't book but we're offered a seat on the deck. Place looks great since the refurb. Will be back.

Zero management, waited an hour and 20 minutes for our food. The owner got aggressive when we asked about our food. No people skills. So disappointed..

Something uncomfortable about this restaurant. Staff pleasant enough (seem to be as before 'change of ownership') but the place feels a throwback in time, politically, if you take my meaning. Food is adequate if uninspired, and kitchen could not offer a baked potato in place...More
