Enjoyed a tasty brunch with 4 adults and 2 young kids. Great service and lovely complimentary birthday brownies and ice-cream. Many thanks to our lovely and attentive waitress! Will happily return.

My latest - and final - visit to the refinery was for team drinks and nibbles, on a Thursday evening. We had planned something simple, with a few bottles of prosecco and side orders to keep us going; even planning ahead and booking a table...More
