I can't compliment this restaurant too much and have eaten here several times. Service, food, ambience all first rate. We visited with friends had an excellent lunch accompanied by a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Lots of choice and all cooked to perfection. They were most impressed.

Thank you for a lovely meal to celebrate a family big birthday. We all very much enjoyed a 3 course lunch, cooked perfectly and tasting absolutely delicious. Impeccable, friendly but professional service. Thank you to Jack for driving us home - very much appreciated. You've made the birthday into a lovely day.
