We booked for Sunday lunch but there isn't a Sunday lunch menu on the website so just had to wait and see. Website is very good so don't see why this was missed.

Had a meal with relatives earlier this week. The ambience is very soothing the menu was varied just enough to be able to choose without too much deliberation. Service was with very friendly staff and the food fantastic. Would certainly visit again.
