Very average, I don't think we made a great choice when we dined here. Limited menu, our salads had clearly been made up and refrigerated for a few hours. Our neighbours food didn't look that great either.More

We went here on a Sunday evening - largely because there were very few restaurants open but were very glad we did. There were two excellent value set menus, a very tasty 'amuse bouche' of sardine pate, marshmallows with dessert and good value wine. Delicious...More
