We ate here on Sat 2 November for a very special birthday. Pre-booked on Open Table, and based on Trip Advisor, and we weren't sorry.
We arrived early, 7 30 for a 7 45 reservation and were warmly greeted. As the table wasn't ready (we were early) we were invited to have a drink in the bar, and the same waitress came to collect us at 7 50.
The place has a fantastic atmosphere, very happy diners and very courteous and efficient waiters. Our waiter committed our order to memory (2 starters, mains, 2 sides and wine) which maybe isn't the greatest memory feat ever but was delivered perfectly, with smiling friendly service.
When somewhere has a signature dish, it's only fair to try it. I've never seen a mutton chop like that in my life! Huge, but absolutely delicious,perfectly char-grilled. That was after oysters on ice, with samphire (It was a very special birthday!). My wife's fillet was also perfect.
It was also great to people watch - no celebrities but locals and tourists all having great time in a place that delivers.
With drinks, and gratuity, over $220 dollars, but the ceiling, the pipes, photos and the ambience made it - memorable.
