“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We can't survive without a 'kids menu' option and we found it here.

The food was great quality, well presented and overall there was a really comprehensive choice.
Mr 9 and I both had the 'tapas seafood tasting plate'...Yum. My husband had the most perfectly done steak ever and the 'bottomless pit AKA Mr 13' had the chicken and was sufficiently satisfied to not then ask 'whats for dinner'

Dear Mummycate

So pleased you enjoyed your dinner with us – it sounds as if your children have been brought up to have a very refined palate and don’t need a “kid’s option”. Have passed on your comments to our chef – it is always good to receive such positive feedback.

Kind regards

Went to the Sunday afternoon jazz and lunch with a couple of friends. Great music (Peter Locke and trio) and great food at reasonable cost. Friendly and attentive service in a relaxed atmosphere.
