There's places... More

We visited the restaurant for a family get together on the Monday between Christmas and New Year. It was a disaster from start to finish. The table, for eleven, had been booked a week in advance for 6 in the evening when we arrived it was very busy. A long and orderly queue at the bar for drinks, three serving... More
