Nice restaurant. Server was very friendly and food was good overall. Service kind of slow. Well presented but starter and cheese board very disappointing. Both bland and miserly portions. Overall good though.

Was looking forward to lunch as have not been in for a while. Felt it was a bit mediocre. Smoked salmon was pleasant but nothing out of the ordinary. Turkey was ok. Just nothing to write home about but nothing wrong either. Service was fineMore

Went for lunch with family Sunday 2nd December. Menu indicated 3 courses from £16.95 which (I think not unaturally) is what I expected to pay, not so. Their pricing is far from transparent - you can pay up to £56.95 for exactly the same meal...More
