Great bar to drink at prior to meal, food quality is excellent, staff polite and attentive. Menu is expansive enough but without being over the top. Great in winter when open fires are burning.

We took our 95 year old uncle out for his birthday and completely happy with the experience. So nice to slow down and enjoy excellent food and drink from the wait staff who were there when needed but unobtrusive otherwise.
