I visited for lunch on Sunday, and although restaurant was quite busy the service was excellent. Both the starter and main course were of very high quality especially the beef fillet main course, which was cooked perfectly to my liking. Worth a visit

Didn't think it would be THAT good. Super satisfied with the food (the dessert is to die for!). Excellent service. Will definitely visit again.
