Fabulous food and service.

We had a lovely meal in the Bistro last night. The food was delicious and service first class. The staff were very attentive and nothing was a bother. Great choice of gluten free foods available if required.

We went here last night for an engagement dinner and were treated like royalty. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the service was excellent and unforced. We had a table of 9 and in some restaurants this would cause issues with service, but not here. The courses were served together and wine and water glasses were... More
