The room we were shown to was small and bare and initially I was worried but actually it turned out to be perfect. Attentive service. Good food. A really easy and nice meal for early evening Friday. I would happily go back.

Me and my boyfriend come here so often it's ridiculous; the atmosphere is great, the prices are fair and the food is always amazing. I love the fact that they have a vegan menu and are quick to comply for other dietary requirements, too!

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and enjoyed the meal. Unfortunately the first 2 desserts I ordered were not available, bit of a disappointment. The staff were friendly but the service was a bit slow.
