A group of us came here after swimming training on a Wednesday evening. We were well looked after. The smoothies & juices were delicious and healthy. I had the hummus starter & the chicken, roast pepper & goat cheese salad for main. Both were amazing & really big portions too. I will definitely be visiting here again.

In a street full of everchanging restaurants catering more to the younger crowd, this is a determinedly old-fashioned place for an older clientele. That applies to both food and decor. My tuna steak was nicely done but the vegetables were grossly overcooked and the mashed potato just a great splodge on the plate. Decent wine by the glass.

Booking was easy via their website We had planned to have the fixed price menu as it looked really good but was told this wasn't available in the evening. Hence the 4 dots otherwise it would have been a five. I must admit... More

The picture is self explanatory. And we paid peanuts on a Sunday afternoon choosing the set menu. Lovely glass of Malbec.
