First visit for my friend and I. Food was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to the pianist, while we ate. Staff great, nothing too much trouble. Very impressed with decor and orangery. Good for wheelchair access & facilities. Hope to be back soon.

This is a first rate restaurant with a wide choice of dishes. It is warm, friendly and the food is always excellent. It seems to attract a regular clientele and can be very busy at times. I dine there at least once a week
