We visited regularly throughout 2016 but as long-term visitors little problems start to occur. My partner is a veggie. She's got bored with the veggie options at this venue which total about 5 Mon-Sat and just ONE on a Sunday. The upshot is that we haven't visited yet in 2017!!!!!! The menu hasn't changed since we started visiting here, ie... More
