What an experience. Absolutely faultless. The staff provided table service through whatsapp. Had a great evening and I'm sure everyone who was there also had a great time. Our servers name was Jack and he was fantastic. Will definitely be back next year!

Called for lunch on Saturday. Very quiet for the time of day but we sat down and ordered lunch and a drink. Friendly staff and very nice food. Reasonably priced too.
