We had a great meal with really friendly service, we had a problem with one of our meals but was sorted out really quickly and was given a bottle of wine to apologise. Will definitely go back.

We met at 4 pm and had cocktails. The list was extensive and had lots of different varieties to try. Booking is essential- table service. A really lovely venue for a civilised catch up with friends.
