The building appears to be an old garage, and it's not had much done to improve that but the food is very good and quite good value for money, wine ordered one by the glass, not available, ordered another, awful, must have been open for a few days.

Vinyl is no more! The same place but now renamed McCool's under new ownership. They have tried hard to make the place warmer, more friendly and a little less austere - and one wishes them well, but our first visit was nothing short of appalling. The new furniture and decoration is a big improvement and the bar area works well.... More

Great service, the waitresses were great very attentive and efficient. The food was to die for. We had the salomon and the venison. Compliments to the chef .
