We went at an odd time between lunch and dinner. The result was that we could not get anyone to wait on us during this odd hour. The food was pretty good. But it was not a high value place.

We enjoyed our time in the Knights bar, a few pints and some nibbles. The service was on the slow side but we did have a good meal.
