We popped in here for lunch on a Saturday and I think we arrived just in the nick of time. Lunch was fantastic and really very good value. This was my second visit and the food is amazing- I will definitely be back and making a reservation next time just to be sure!

Very good traditional food with a twist, well cooked and attentive service. Let down by location but well worth a shot especially for lunch, check that in advance so as not to be disappointed.
