We used the back room for our fairly large party. Service was ok to good, and the food was excellent. I had the Cajun Chicken, and absolutely loved it. Everybody enjoyed their food.

Finished off the meal with a 100 tr old Spanish Brandy, much nicer than that French rubbish, £8.95 a single is of course expensive, but for a treat, it was well worth it. The food was also excellent!
