I went for the Sunday brunch with some friends with a baby and also for dinner solo. The staff were helpful with the baby. The food was excellent and the ambience superb.It would have been nice if they had included champagane instead of beer for the sunday brunch

A great menu to flick through, the staff were helpful in helping decide what to try. The menu had a selection of northern and southern dishes, including some I had not seen before.
