Really had a nice day here with cocktails and nibbles. However, the band consisting of two women and a man were so loud for the space. So, so noisy. We couldn't hear any of our company talking. Obviously we realise live music can be loud but this is extremely loud for a small space. Staff walking around like headless chickens and the older waiter in a kilt really turned a blind eye when we tried to get his attention more than once. Eventually we ordered at the bar. Very short staffed. When we were served the cocktails were very nice.

I dined here tonight with a group at a business dinner. The options for three-course dinner were tomato bisque, fishcakes or cheese platter. Main course options were stuffed chicken breast, salmon fillet or spinach tortellini's.
I ordered the fish cakes which came out steaming hot and very delicious. They were not too breaded and they came with a delicious sauce. For my main course I had the salmon which was also very well-prepared, tender and flaky, it came with a side of salad and small fingerling potatoes with thin green beans and capers.

Dessert was fabulous! I had a lemon cheesecake tart. The people who had the sticky toffee wolfed it down!
Great dinner!

Attached to our hotel so very handy. We didn't eat anything here, but sampled a few cocktails and purchased a few bottles of champagne. Has a lovely vibe to it, with the waiters dressed in tuxes.
