The lunch menu here is not extensive but the food delicious, well prepared and presented. The soup was smooth and tasty and the rolls generously filled. The room was sumptuous with high ceilings, a warm cosy log fire, interesting architecture and stained glass windows. The service was friendly and efficient. All in all an excellent lunch.
