Every visit is a pleasure. It is difficult to fault the food, which was beautifully presented, only to be matched by the personal and attentive service. Highly recommended. I shall be returning, soon.

I was served by a girl called Jess who served me my food. She was on work experience however she was really nice and very friendly. I had a lovely conversation with her about why she chose to work here.

The food here is great. We have held two family events here, one in the room at the back and one in the whole restaurant. The service was amazing and the people who work here are very good at what they do.
