What a beautiful building with amazing food, very friendly staff and lovely beer. Get there early to get a seat. Staff explain each cut of meat. The lobster can be ordered fresh and you can choose your meal.

Good breakfast. Good portions. Families welcome! Kids get to colour with pencil crayons while waiting for the meal. Kids served first. We had a table by the window which was great. Reservation recommended but not necessary. We didn't have reservations but only waited about 10 minutes.
