A lazy lunchtime treat, lovely food and spot on service. Really varied menu and both dishes we chose were well prepared and empty plates soon followed. Service was great and a lovely atmosphere with some great jazz playing loud enough to hear but not to drown out the conversation, booked a return one evening and looking forward to it

My Partner and i booked this restaurant for a romantic night out and the venue didn't disappoint. My steak salad was great, and the Lamb Shank was simply delicious, Great service which was delivered with a lovely smile. Cocktails upstairs with a couple of hours spent in the Bar dancing to follow, Lovely patio area for drinks outside.
