Nothing too much trouble, charming staff and good to watch an open kitchen at work . Menu extensive and a lot of food envy going on! Just not here long enough but will return.

I've eaten here a few times as part of a large group (approx 30). The food is always excellent (if you like coffee skip this as it's really not good) and with lots of people good fun. Sometimes there is an odd smell in the room at the end (used for groups). This wouldn't be the place I'd go for... More
