Warm welcome, extensive beer list! Slight kitchen error, they put the chilli in my wife's Belgian beer moules instead of my Creole ones! Had to ask for this to be reflected in the bill but they were happy to adjust it. Service started out well but became tardy as they got busier. But generally well liked, we will be back!

Mmmm! Always a winner with Belgian beers! We didn't eat here but the food did look very good, it is a tad pricey but worth going. Live music most Fridays, its a great place to relax.

Food was very good, although the desserts were a bit lacking. The service was really good, all staff were attentive and anything we ordered was spot on. The only downside (if any) was that it was a bit overpriced.
