The building and style of the restaurant are very good, rustic looking but certainly enough class to make this a visually appealing place to eat, however thats about where the great impressions ended. The food is ok, its overly complicated and fairly poorly executed attempts at fine dining. I had the Ham Hock with truffle custard for starters, it was... More
