We chose this place simply because it had a spacious square in which our toddler grandson could have space to play if required. It was a bad choice: poor, surly service; unappetising food; bar area thick with smoke (customers were smoking inside); overpriced.

The location is pretty... lovely spot to sit and have a few drinks. Unfortunately the food wasn't great(understatement!). Stringy steak and tasteless pasta. Even the cheese plate was below average.
