Food excellent, service slowed when restaurant was full. Staff friendly, wine selection limited but fairly priced. Good selection of gins. Overall a good dining experience.
The whole lunchtime experience was excellent with delicious food, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service was friendly attentive and efficient. and the venue was lovely, comfortable, warm and welcoming. We will definitely be back.
I couldn't resist having a starter so I was sadly too full for pudding - maybe next time. The starter (mushroom and potato quiche) was amazing though!
