There are new items like shrimp scampi and moussaka, veal marsala and chicken spinacoli.
Twelve ounce steaks are available, as are moussaka, deep fried scampi and gammon steaks, as well as a choice of reasonably-priced burgers and kebabs.

The reasonably-priced menu serves everything you would expect - jackets, scampi and chips, burgers, baguettes and so on - but nothing you wouldn't.
