My wife and I felt like a nice French meal and had a pleasant meal with very friendly staff. The Frogs Legs for starters were especially good.

Excellent value again for Sunday lunch in every way. Just one hint to the staff - turn some heating on. It was cold the first Sunday in March, but the welcome was very warm.

Found it odd that they were still advertising the Christmas menu on their web site when u was joking and on board outside on the pavement when we arrived in late February...
