We ate here at lunchtime. I had a huge chunk of ciabatta with a thin layer of cranberry jelly, wafer thin pears and some sort of cheese. It was tasteless. My husband chose haddock rarebit and even after the waitress insisted that "everyone likes this!" we disagree! Small portion made cold by sitting on huge cold sliced tomatoes. What a pretentious restaurant. Do not waste your time and money hoping that I have got it wrong!
