Food was as good as I have had at many self-consciously "feyn deyning" places, but prices and attitude both a lot less ludicrous. Big tick, gold star.

Hi. We would love to come for a family meal but gave a fussy 14 year old! I don't think she will eat anything on the menu - are you able to provide anything more simple for her? Thanks.
