Place is very nice, excellent food albeit a very limited menu and very good service. All in all a very good place to pop by if you are shopping in the area. It's a shame they close so early in the evening though

Read about this place on TA and when in the area popped in for a sandwich and tea. Nothing special, and view not as good as I expected.
