Food was amazing! Scallops, lamb roast and triple brownie with ice cream excellent! Staff fantastic. I would suggest putting felt pads on legs if chairs as the screech when people moved was loud due to tiles on floor, spoilt the ambience a little. Will definitely return.

I met with family just as it opened for lunch, so for a while there were hardly any other people eating, however others soon started to arrive. The food and service were excellent.
