The hotel driver, Abe picked us up in the Q7 and was very friendly and chatty.
On arrival it looked a bit formal but was actually very relaxed and enjoyable. Alfio, the resident pianist played every possible tune going, even, Blayden Races, a Geordie tune that some will know. But to hear that in this fine restaurant was funny and we laughed and joked with other guests and Alfio. Requests followed.
The service was very good, staff well informed on the food and wine.
A night cap in the hotel bar was a great end to the night.
