The table with a bottle of champagne in an ice bucket, which I had requested, was ready when we arrived. The service was attentive and very friendly. Specials slightly limited which a bit strange for a 6.00pm booking, but not really a problem. Overall very, very enjoyable evening.

Service was v slow although they were not busy.
Had to ask many times for ice and water as it was pretty humid and hot.
I normally love the food and service but unfortunately it wasn’t to be especially inviting our friends as I was raving about their food and service.

We were lucky to have a table outside as it was a warm sunny day. The service was excellent and the food was good, though we felt perhaps a little gravy/white sauce or bread sauce with the chicken would have added something to avoid it being too “dry”. Otherwise the starters were excellent and our partners enjoyed their meals.
