We could not fault the meal we had here one bit. It was obviously a busy night but the wait staff were friendly and attentive. We had the crab/calamari to start and then the pork belly and salmon with a side of cauliflower gratin. Every...More

Popped in for a drink and a bowl of chips with some friends. Was nice and sunny outside. Good place for a quiet drink before dinner. We didn’t eat here but the menu looked interesting too.
