They have two private rooms and I was there last Friday for my wife's birthday and both rooms were in use. They can do many special things for you, so just ask, but best of all is the food, it is exceptional.

The sample Sunday Lunch menu is on there website. It changes quite often so it might be worth phoning them and they could email you the up to date one
