Visited on a Sunday evening in winter. The dining room was warm and cosy. Our waitress was friendly and efficient, there was a lot of choice on the menu and a nice range of drinks. Crab cakes were tasty and fresh, and our pasta dish...More

Went for lunch with three friends. In general the food was fine; however, I had asked for a minor substitution--a change of salad dressing. Unfortunately, the kitchen dressed the salad with the original dressing (balsamic vinaigrette glaze) and provided my requested substitute on the side....More
