There was a good choice of food and it was served piping hot, which makes a pleasant change for a restaurant!! One slight complaint (although bearing in mind we had just had the coldest day!) is that the restaurant near to the windows was very draughty and cold, but as it wasn't busy we could move easily to another table.
