Went here for a relaxed celebratory drink with my girlfriend. Oscar and Danny were on the bar and provided a friendly and welcoming atmosphere - and made great cocktails to top it off! Great for a drink with your s/o or with friends.

Lovely meal .... staff were attentive and friendly. We booked a table early as we were staying at the hotel. If there was anything that I found negative it was the background music which was abit loud.

To describe their traditional Sunday Roast Diner is quite the understatement. I was so shocked I almost proposed the chef... Plus the staff was sooo kind to me! Definitely one of my favourite places in the city.

If we have a meal there we have wine with an excellent choice of wine list. If we eat elsewhere we go there for cocktails and other drinks.
