The range of the menu was broad and everything we had was generous and very tasty. There were not many staff but the waitress was friendly and efficient - although we had an early dinner there were not many people in yet.

starters and main courses for two were enjoyed without any of the razamatazz of previous reviews which was the reason for our visit Great waitress but even she couldn't rescue the ordinariness of the food on a very quiet Monday night Very nice house wine but sorry we wont be in a rush back to Zafran
