We were seated very quickly. Food was excellent unfortunately couldnt say the same about the staff. Felt rushed and staff were loitering to clear our table before we had all finished eating. Very cramped seating plan .

We visited yesterday for our Sunday lunch having already booked a table online (highly recommended).

The only person who deserved high praise was the... More

Hi Angela, Sorry you found the restaurant to be too busy. Due to it being a Sunday afternoon it does get extremely busy during peak trade 12-3 5-7pm. I would recommend trying us in the week if you wish to have a more relaxed experience. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Carl More
