Discovered this restaurant by chance. Amazing setting in the old post office, open kitchen plan where you can see the chefs at work, excellent table service and the food topped it all!

Went there today for a very over priced breakfast that took ages to be served with because the chef was more interested in making phone calls - will not use again.More
