Good food, good service. The manager himself made me a Banoffee Pie when he realised there were none left, simply because i told him it was my favorite dessert! Really nice effort will go back for sure!More

On arrival we were shown to a table, surprisingly at lunchtime quite a choice. Service acceptable if not welcoming. We had the chicken tatin, almost no chicken, a bit of toast and lettuce. Nothing wrong but wouldn't come again. The staff and food make restaurants...More

Calling the service appalling is doing it a kindness. The waiter was unfriendly and rude, the food slow, all contributing to an awful experience. The food could have saved it, but it was average to poor at best.More
