Although lovely food and ambiance. staff did take a while to come round. Which is nice not to be constantly interrupted but if you haven't ordered after half an hour as we asked them to give us mintue to look through the menu. And having to get up to pay as we had asked for the bill, received the bill for 30 minutes and none came to collect it. Again not the service was bad everyone was friendly. Just need more staff and all staff taking payment to as it was only one man. Would order from here. Would maybe try a weekday to eatin

Our table had a variety of dishes served, all of which were excellent - cooked to perfection and with the most amazing flavours! Combining the excellent food with the welcoming & attentive services (this time as well as previous visits) makes this one of my all time favourite restaurants
