Called in mid afternoon during the New Year week - we'd been before for coffee only, but this time were looking for lunch. Unlike the previous visit, and probably because of the time of day, the noise level was much more tolerable. The polished concrete...More

I come here at least twice a month. The service is usually quite good and they are very apologetic on the odd chance there is a mistake. Staff are friendly and often joke around with us. The food is outstanding and reasonably priced. The regular...More
