Hi there, I'm very glad that you stayed and had a pleasant visit, despite the Sunday lunches being sold out, they are extremely popular! We hope to see you this weekend for our new and improved Sunday roast! Many Thanks, Damon

We visited on route to a gig. The building and area inside are both lovely. If we were not due elsewhere would have definitely stayed much longer for a meal. Looking forward to spender longer in the English Lounge soon.
