I have eaten lunch here several times and keep on forgetting to praise them for their efforts !
However, better late than never?
The lunch menu is not only very tasty, it's great value at around a fiver or so.
We have often both have the club sandwich (they use lovely carved ham) but one day we decided on the ploughmans and the club sandwich so we could split them (love variety!) The ploughmans was really tasty so we shall do that again.
The staff will happily serve you at the table in the brasserie but unfortunately you have to ask and, the service at the bar is as slow as it is in the evening.
If the management could maybe pop someone in there just to calculate how long they have to wait to be served they would probably train the staff to move just a bit faster especially when there are a few people waiting - I have genuinely witnessed potential customers leave the bar without ordering.
Having said that, it is well worth a visit for the lovely lunch menu.
