Sunday 9th April-beautiful day, our party of 12 happily accommodated outside under parasols 3 young Children served first, and thereafter Adult menus. Good attentiveness to family requirements/priorities .Food/ambience excellent. Plenty of "atmosphere/noise" quieter inside facilities also excellent.
