“Some unique dishes, and great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2009

We stayed at the hotel (The George) where this restaurant resides, and had a lunch here.

The meals were great, classic dishes all done a little differently. For example, the "not so lemon meringue pie".

We were lucky to be waited on by a waiter and a waitress, both were great fun and professional.
