Although the lounge does not look very formal from the outside, the interior is lovely, food delicious, and staff friendly! I ordered a grill chicken salad which was perfectly seasoned and dressing very tasty and my mother the dipping platter with warm fresh bread. Don't judge a book by its cover

What a great venue for a private event, the food was delicious, the staff where extremely attentive from the offset and nothing was a problem.
