I have nothing good whatsoever to say about this restaurant, infact I can think of no redeeming features at all. Everything about our experience here was bad from start to finish.

Been here a number of times and food is always dependable. But if anything brings me back again and again it is the phenomenal roast beef which unfortunately you need to order in advance - so make sure you do so if you eat meat because no where on earth can you find a more succulent and deliciously amazing roast...
