Meal good, but won't be back! Its now become a nightclub type place, felt very rushed out the door, poor service and the entertainment people were setting up while we were still eating. Such a shame a lovely dinning place has gone this way!!

The lunches are really good value and came out quickly although they did take a little long to take our order and had to ask again for drink orders. But overall a very good lunch with lots of options
