Could not have been better. 53 people with varying meal choices. Staff were efficient and very helpful and pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Fabulous location, welcoming and comfortable. Brilliant attention from front of house, who made our afternoon feel special. The food was lovely and they catered for gluten free diet which was a plus. Thank you for making my birthday special!!
