We had a wonderful time here last night. Excellent and comprehensive wine list. I ordered lamb, and my partner had a steak. We ordered chips and Mac n cheese as sides. Everything was delicious and we left with no complaints. Beautiful place too.

We went for on Sunday Lunch, the resturant was busy but very friendly and attentive staff. Steak and Turbot were delicious. Not the cheapest but worth it in our opinion! Would recommend for those looking for something a bit special.
