I had the chickpea burger while my friends had the shared platter (soon shut them up), another had lasagne and the other the pollo pesto dish. Everyone agreed how wonderful the food... More

We were shown upstairs as there was refurbishment in progress, though our arrival seemed to take the staff by surprise. The menus handed out were wrong, the orders took a long time to... More
