Great atmosphere in the restaurant. Food was delicious, good size portions and piping hot and we were served very quickly. However, our drink order was incorrect, but rectified quickly, and they were unable to give me a lid for my water so I had to leave approx half the bottle behind.

Only disappointment was that the sticky toffee pudding had a lot of ginger which put my daughter off eating it - this wasn't in the description of the dish. Overall it was good with lovely staff

It was nice. Meal and service were good. Wine could have been chilled a bit better. The menu has been extended and this is better as my party and myself like risotto and there s now more choices.
