Meal was okay but expensive for what you get. Cappucinos were weak and cold when served. The manager rectified this immediately but although these were hot they were still very weak . Don't think we'll go there again!

We were regular visitors at the Cattle Baron - it had a charm and ambience that was cosy and old worldly. The rennovation has brightened the property and opened up the venue. For us the EDGE is lost somehow. The food was average.
