When we went on a Saturday evening, this restaurant was very busy. We hadn't booked, but the staff tried to accommodate us quickly. We sat at the bar, which was fun as the staff chatted as they worked. (All the staff seemed to work very hard all the time we were there) The staff knew the menu, beers and wines and could talk about them. I had the meatloaf which was excellent. Unfortunately, I didn't have room for a desert as the portion was big!
