Had dinner on Saturday night. Restaurant is nicely decorated and all the staff are friendly and efficient. Food was very good and service was quick. Not sure that it is brilliant value but it is a reliably top class restaurant.

Food excellent. Service first class! We had to pre- order our meal from choice of four starters, mains and desert which was not a problem. Everything worked like clockwork and everyone seemed to enjoy their evening. Thank you for a great night.

Small eating areas, lots of people hogging bar but good food if a little expensive. Be warned they do not include veg in the price this is an extra.
