Great meal. Great service. Great atmosphere, and Emersons on tap! Beef Wellington and Lemon Brulee to die for. A really great restaurant, in the city centre.

Went with a big group without a booking and it wasn't a problem for them. Really yummy food for brunch and it looks like it would be great for an evening visit.
