Five of us (all adults) were celebrating an 85th birthday. The service was excellent (a French lady) and the food couldn’t be faulted either. Everything was timely. Quality food and good value. Good wine. We would definitely come again.

My wife and me went there for brunch but found the staff, (apart from a younger female member of staff), both unwelcoming and unfriendly. The brown toast we had with our over-priced scrambled egg-based meals was obviously stale bread that had been toasted rock hard...More
