Ever recommended a restaurant and had to bear the consequences afterwards? This won’t happen here. A safe recommendation for out-of-towners looking for a good restaurant for business or social purposes. We go regularly as a couple and have never had a bad meal.

Really delicious food and great service . Went with a vegan friend and they could not have been more accommodating designing a meal suitable for her!
