Wonderfully unique menu and charming service. One of those meals where you remember the evening far beyond the usual “pretty good/money’s worth” assessment. An excellent, intimate evening with friends with friendly, respectful staff.

Yes, on street and in the parking lot beside. Very quiet at night, the only cars are those at Blighty's.
