We could not eat in the main dining area but the adjacent bar is very nice and they serve the same menu. Both meals where very nice and there is a nice atmosphere to the place. The staff are friendly and the service was very good.

We had a lovely meal here this week, venison pie and Thai chicken curry, followed by a dime cake. The service was very good, it was quiet in there, but the manager came out and was talking knout the great artwork in the place. Would definitely consider staying here on a future visit to Gras ere, thank you.
