A very imaginative menu. The food was well cooked, stylishly presented, and served with enthusiasm. A great place to eat out, bags of atmosphere.

Excellent meal and helpful service. We hadn't booked but popped in on the off chance because of a recommendation. Will definitely visit again. The steak dish and the fish dish were very good and also a good range of wines available by the glass.
