Staff were nice. Food was ordinary. My carpaccio was the best dishh of the night. Other dishes were pretty ordinary - including the special, which was the sea-food spring roll. The rhubab crumble was soupy.More

Had an early dinner, enjoyed all of it! Excellent service among such a quirky setting, with the story of its history at the table. Would definitely visit again.

The food quality was very good. They were unfortunately under-staffed on the night we went and my husband had a drink tipped over him. The price was probably a bit high for quality of service provided

Very sorry about that! especially when we expect to be quiet and are busier than usual it does me we can very ocassionally be under staffed. Obviously it is never our intention to not have enough staff on.
