Amazing food- lots to pick from. House red wine is lovely. We ordered far too much food but they let us take away in boxes what we couldn’t finish. Staff were so friendly and a kind reminder at 9:55 that we had to leave sadly....More

You don’t need to book unless 6 or more (probably due to table sizes). Max wait is half hour at peak time.
