The meal was lovely, staff were extremely courteous, however, the place was freezing and we were not sitting beside a door. My meal was eaten with my coat on and we left without having desserts, it was just too cold to stay any longer.

We had brunch here today - service was very good, food good as well. It filled up fast at lunchtime. Prices are very reasonable and for what you get it's good.

Food as always was great. Service excellent. Only improvement I'd make would be to make the menu more user friendly, its a bit hard to read.

We have the simple belief that good food, well delivered in a stylish environment is a ‘recipe for success'.
