This venue is usually really excellent, and the food normally delicious. Visited today (01 Sep) and had a disappointing experience. Very unusual for here. Don't let this put you off - normal service will probably be resumed tomorrow.!! Anywhere can have an off day !!

I'll start off by saying that there isn't a great choice on the menu. If I go for breakfast, I order the French brioche toast, if I go for lunch, I order the fish and chips, and for dessert, I always order the lemon meringue...More
