We booked online for a Saturday evening and when we arrived at the restaurant the table was ready and it had a lovely view across the canal basin.
We had two starters and shared them between us - the bread basket which was fabulous Italian bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and arancini with a cold tomatoes and red pepper dip (the dip would have been even better warm).
For mains I had the beef salad - I thought it was odd that there was no dressing with the salad; but the steak was lovely and salad was fresh and crisp. My husband had the Pork Fillet special, I didn't taste his meat, but the ratatouille was yummy and the little roast potatoes tasted rustic.
Being good I didn't have a pud, but hubby had the Panetone bread and butter pudding with Mascarpone icecream. He said it was light and full of flavour.
My only complaint about this chain store restaurant is why are you serving hot tea in a glass?? It's just odd.
