We made a booking which I'd suggest is essential to avoid disappointment. The wait staff, barman (who came to the table to make sure he would mix my martini to my liking!) and management all made a great impression despite the venue being busy so...More

As far as we can remember, it was allowing well-behaved dogs on leads. We think there was a dog lying quietly under a table whilst we were there.
