Family friendly lavishedly priced fine dining at its best with a prime rib feature that is second to none. Thick cut, savoury flavor, and very tender. Service with people that are groomed to care and serve.

We have been for brunch to celebrate most special occasions over the last ten years. Something for everyone to eat. Staff seat you and then leave you to celebrate and are always available if something is needed. Very clean and a great selection of food.
