The meal was good, , but it was a very slow service, there was no atmosphere at all in the restaurant, the waiter looked fed up and bored. Very mediocre.

Popped in here on the off chance a few weeks ago and I have to say we had a fantastic meal. Lovely service, bustling but relaxing atmosphere and really lovely food. We will definitely be back.
