Probably due to the weather the restaurant was very busy plus they were doing takeouts, but the food was as good as always & we didn’t feel rushed at all. We had a lovely meal & will definitely be going again.

Good food a polite service. Always presented well. Been there a few times and always a pleasant experience. The soft drinks;( a basic small glass of blackcurrant and soda/fizzy squash) was overpriced; 2 glasses@£5.90? Too steep.
