We popped in for lunch with 2 little ones. The food, the atmosphere, the decor all good, until we found the dreaded hair in the pop corn chicken. We showed the waitress.. and all she said..'sorry about that.' And did and said nothing else. It...More

We picked this venue at random and were not disappointed. Great food and great wine served in lovely and unusual glasses. We had the sliders, baked Brie and mushroom rice dish... We also had the eggplant "chips" which was the only disappointing part of the...More

Quaint and interesting bar, really enjoyed the tapas menu but did find the drinks took too long to make and no bathrooms inside, meaning you have to trek outside in the cold
