9.30pm still eating and ordering more drinks. Owner polishing next table to us, asked bar staff if they wanted us to leave. He said 'No" (wasn't really the case though-only people in restaurant) Never went back

Having travelled from London to dine here, it was so worth it. The food was perfect, as was the service. Only downside was they didn’t serve non alcoholic beer as dad was driving. Will definitely return

Hi theyre not open every day, Thursday-Sunday I think, open for lunch then again in the evening. Not sure about menus you'd have to ring and ask I guess. Hope that helps a bit!
