We had a three course meal with wine. Have been to this restaurant numerous times over the last 20 years but this was the best. A class above!

I don't like moaning about businesses but the food was terrible. Starter of combination but no taste whatsoever. Main meal just battered batter. Another one we won't be going back to.
