The maitre'd of this restaurant didn't even look at us or say hello just asked what name and when we said we didn't have a reservation we were hoping there'd be something free he just said fully booked and walked away, it would put me off going here again.

Another wonderful meal, from scallops & fig salad for starters, to steak & duck for mains, all extremely tasty. One of the steaks was over cooked but the waiter swiftly replaced it .plenty of divine roast veg to go with mains As always lovely atmosphere with nick strumming away in corner
