Although we arrived early this was not a problem. Our table was waiting and we were shown to it and drinks brought promptly. We had two courses which were fine except for the meringue in my wife's pudding . We mentioned this when the dishes were cleared and the pudding was deducted from the bill and in addition we were given a complementary packet of biscuits which the restaurant also sells. A pleasant meal with excellent service. Look forward to our next visit

I usually eat here with my husband or family for breakfast at the weekends. However have been very disappointed over the last couple if weeks. Today we were waiting for just under 10 minutes without even being given a menu so walked out and went somewhere else. What was more frustrating was the fact that a member of staff saw us sit down outside, said good morning and was never seen again! Doesn't look like there are many staff working over the last few Saturday mornings. Really bad customer service, will be giving it a miss for a while.

Thank SDGough

Visited for the first time in the evening - tempted by the offer of live music. We've had breakfast here before which we've really enjoyed. Spent ages choosing what to eat but were not hassled at all by staff - nice to be able to linger over wine and Puglian olives and peruse the menu. Eventually plumped for spaghetti vongole which is a main course but we shared as a primi and then shared an enormous rib eye steak which we had with roasted potatoes, a tomato/red onion salad, a green salad and green beans. Was all delicious. We tried a bottle each of their red and white specials - very nice if slightly excessive! Finished with a shared tiramisu - very scrummy and coffee. Music was good (FB Pocket Orchestra) and the atmosphere great. A really nice evening. We've booked to return for the next musical evening - opera plus set meal - should be fun. Special mention for our brilliant and very patient waitress, Yolene. You might be interested to know that eggs at breakfast are free range but some of their evening food (venison tortelloni and homemade ravioli for example) contains non-free range egg - we're hoping this will be sorted out soon so have free range everything - would making choosing so much easier and it's way nicer for the hens!
