Me and my partner visited here for a treat. The service was attentive, old style traditional and warming. I loved the fact you were seated in the lounge with a drink to browse at the menu. The starters were cooked beautifully, and the wine and service was excellent. I had lamb for my main, and asked for it rare though... More

I obtained a reservation for a party of four and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is part of an hotel and is in... More

The service was excellent attentive and friendly. The restaurant itself looks typical of a traditional hotel restaurant aimed at the older clientele but... More
