Staff where pleasant enough but restaurant ? More like cafe , the food was mediocre at best and due to the menu mostly consisting of fried food the smell of a greasy joe cafe permeated the premises , not an experience that I will be making the mistake of enduring again .....

We heard that Simon was back in the kitchen so we went along. Although he's hasn't been back long enough to get his own menu sorted out, the meals he cooked were delicious.
