The whole place is geared to the customer and somehow, lunchtimes are always the more successful. This is because the lighting in the evenings tends to throw a stygian gloom on the dining room. They would do well to install something more intimate and effectively...More

Please can you advise whether there is a Sunday lunch option. Also would it be acceptable to take a 2 month old baby into the restaurant? Thankyou
