The food was about what I have come to expect, not bad, not great. Service was less than friendly, kind of disinterested. I'd try somewhere else.

Partner and I went for Sunday lunch today. Both had the pork, excellent and nicely presented. Had an Italian Merlot to compliment the meal, very nice. Great friendly service. Lovely venue. Felt very relaxed and at home. Would do again.
