We liked this so much we ate there two nights running - good choice of well cooked food. Portions are not enormous, which leaves room for dessert! Helpful with identifying gluten-free options - still had a good choice.

Fabulous food and great atmosphere. Although they didn't advise us when booking there would be 2 sittings so wasn't expecting to have to leave the table. They were very apologetic and gave us a drink on the house. Highly recommend
