The main course I had was very well prepared, service was great, everyone was very warm and polite. Though I was a fan of my bread pudding dessert it didn't dampen the meal or my overall experience. Great experience!

Delicious sushi and fish pie. Friendly, professional service. Next time I would sit in the courtyard as upstairs smelt strongly of cooking smells.
