Called in on our way back to catch our train and ended up missing the next 2 we were having such a great time!! Had a super meal, tasty, freshly made and served by the delightful Remi. Left feeling full but pleasantly so. Highly recommended.

We had the set lunch. Bang bang chicken skewers which I found bland, a bit of chilli sauce on the side wouldn't have gone a miss or simply some seasoning. The bruschetta, dry bread, not toasted, no oil, tiny balls of goats cheese, then beetroot...More
