Fabulous as always. Great atmosphere, delicious food ... plus right on our doorstep ... perfect! Highly recommend the steak on the current menu and the Creme brûlée was delicious.

Good food in pleasant surroundings, nothing was too much trouble, staff were welcoming and helpful. You could choose 2 or 3 courses for a fixed price with a small but varied choice within each. All of the 4 different courses we had were delicious. We chose a 2 course meal, but everyone is served with a small amuse bouche which serves as a starter for those with smaller appetites, making a 3 course dinner which left us feeling pleasantly replete, rather than stuffed! We will certainly return.
