Great service a menu to suit all. A lovely warm atmosphere on a cold winter night. Bit noisy which is an aspect all restaurants who want return trade need to work on. But it is a popular restaurant and bar.

They do not have a private party room. They have discrete areas. But depending on the number you could rent the whole restaurant.
