Really quality food. You can mix and match with the bar menu and there is a good selection of wines at sensible prices.

One of the few places around that wasn't a pub, not at all bad, we had fish mixed grill, i had crab to start. Staff all young and enthusiastic if inexperienced. I did get fed up with repeated "Enjoys". Bit pricey we thought.
