Was a bit empty on a Saturday night. Had eaten at the Taverners over the road the night before. Had a hot mackerel starter and a chicken and bacon main. Both excellently cooked by staff who couldn't do enough for us. The quality was as good as the Taverners. Clearly some people have got an axe to grind and the restaurant is consequently suffering. Take my advice and try it for an evening meal.
